Description

My Christmas Eve dress this year. I love the pattern by Apfelbluete. It’s incredibly simple and quick to sew up, and fits beautifully. The twisting of the fabric works with so well with the stripes, and I adore the fact that I can gather the skirt up on my hips to wear it as a blouse, pull it right down to be a knee-length dress, or gather it up just a little to be a mini dress. Super versatile and got me a lot of compliments on Christmas Eve. Thanks Apfelbluete!

    It wears me out just to look at you wearing this dress.

    Those sleeves, your attitude, and that fabric! This is the trifecta necessary to achieve the level of being “stunning”.

    I am glad that your dress is full of success :-). I also liked Twister as a strip version.

    I’m not a big fan of clothes with two different sleeves but here it works perfectly!

      I totally agree – I’m normally a symmetry fanatic, but somehow this style works. I was a little dubious when I chose the pattern, for that reason, but it turned out really well in the end :) Yay!
