Auckland, New Ze...
When my first idea for a christmas party dress wound up being too warm for the afternoon event I made a last minute dash the night before and bought this lovely red ponte knit fabric. I used a tried’n true pattern, New Look 6643, with a couple of adjustments, added a bow and hurrah finished in 3 hours.
1.75m of Ponte de Roma knit. This fabric is perfect if you’re in a hurry – it’s forgiving, you can skip the zipper in most cases and the raw edges won’t fray so no need for finishing the seams.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
