Charlotte Hall, ...
This is a sleeveless version of a tried and true self-drafted design. It was made using a striped jersey knit material that I’ve had in my stash for a while. I played around with stripes for this one, making a chevron on the front and back of the skirt. The armholes are finished with bias tape that is handstitched down on the inside. The hem is also handstitched. I have since lengthened the bodice of this pattern, since, as you can see it used to be a bit too short.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
