I made this dress a couple of weekends ago when I realized that I don’t really have any “kickin around in” clothes. I love my clothes to death but I’m not going to pretend that some mornings when I get up I don’t hate the idea of putting something structured and restrictive on.
Casual clothes aren’t really my forte and jersey has often eluded me, Yet here we are! And I’m most surprised!
It all came about when I was clearing out my fabric corner. I was going through some off cuts that I had picked up from work and I came across a small piece of white double knit Ponte. It was thick, luxurious, soft and stretchy. I knew it would fill that hole in my wardrobe that simply demanded something warm and comfy (considering its quite cold outside!). Sadly the piece was not quite 1 meter, so I teamed it with some light denim chambray that a friend gave me.
Because the fabrics I used were so simple, I needed to add some interest with the pattern. I went with Simplicty 4168 as I really loved the soft delicate cowl and the French darts.
