While getting used to my eyes changing and my right hand still mending, I’ve gone back over old ground with this knit dress.
I bought this printed knit from The Fabric Store during a rushed afternoon in town. I was at a course that finished early so straight to The Fabric Store I went, just before closing time. The blonde behind the counter was not impressed but the guy who served me was patient and helpful.
As you can see, only the top has the wrap finish to it. The skirt isn’t wrap style. Syl at work gave me hemming advice so I took 2″ off the hem. For some reason, the lines on the print line up fairly well, and it’s a good style while our weather is trying to cool down.
This week, DH has been on the road for work so I snuck the baby machine downstairs and sewed in front of the telly – woo hoo.
What I didn’t realise was how fitted the sleeve was so last night, I cut into the sleeve and cut out a triangle with 12cm in the base and this morning, I added the triangle piece into the sleeve. Why? I didn’t want to unpick the sleeve, because I have two rows of stitching in the sleeve head.
