Description

A Beautiful black double knit in a simple, mod style designed by Larry Aldrich. I photoshoped with high saturation in these photos so you can see the detail, so the color might look a little dull. It gathers at the collar, and like my previous post, the interfacing made bit of astronaut collar. But once I got the bow it actually resembled the drawn design (when does that happen?). Decided to take a few pictures in the sewing room where I work. More at my blog Vintage Bobbin

Material Notes

Black double knit. Zipper. Knit interfacing.

    Double knits! Great for structured dress patterns such as yours. That neckline detail could be done in a variety of ways. I love it. Since it calls attention to the face, it definitely demands great make up and hair.

    I know what you mean! I think this is the first handmade dress I have ever seen that matches the drawing on the pattern cover! Probably a lot to do with your fitting skills and lovely choice of fabric! Well done. Its lovely :-)
