Quick one-evening project in ponte knit. I made it for traveling, as I had two overnight plane trips coming up. It’s a great traveling dress, very comfortable, and worn with leggings it’s warm and modest. I found that the neckline was too large, so I took two small darts in the back neck and I try to stand up really straight so the front doesn’t gape too much.
Some ‘cheap’ ponte knit from Spotlight in NZ. It’s already starting to pill so I won’t be buying it again. (it wasn’t ‘cheap’ either)
