Description

I made a winter dress from a summery sleeveless dress pattern by adding long sleeves and using wool fabrics in black, grey and white. This dress was like putting together a wearable jigsaw puzzle and required a lot of handbasting to make sure all the seams lined up perfectly and it was difficult to get those white side panels sewn in but it was worth it – I love this dress!

Black wool crepe, grey wool flannel, white textured poly-wool blend and bemsilk lining fabric

    Great dress! How did you design the sleeves? Or did you take them from another pattern! Good idea! May I borrow it from You? ;)

    Excellent dress. Pity the weather hasn’t really been wintery enough to wear it lately!
