Wraped up – simplicity 2369

I couldn’t let this week go by without finishing the first toile of this dress. The fabric is from Knitwit direct and I chose this fabric because of the dark all over pattern. The raglan sleeves threw me a bit but I realised I needed to take some fullness out of the front piece as my roll shoulder adjustment. 

The fabric pattern is large so I didn’t bother trying to match it up. This length is going to be my dress length. The buckle was purchased at Jimmy’s buttons in Melbourne. The neckline facing is used as a feature instead of being sewn on the inside of the top. I think doing this in a contrasting colour would lift a plain knit fabric too. There’s some spandex in the fabric so it should keep it’s shape over time. Basically none of this dress was bought in Sydney.
