Added May 11, 2010
This dress was made for my ‘week 16’ of A Sewn Item A Week.
Inspired by my friend who had ‘classy’ windcheaters, I thought I would make a cosy number for the upcoming Melbourne winter season. Made from ‘windcheater’ material, the fabric (charcoal grey) has a slight stretch to it, and hence this item has no zips.
There are darts in the front panel, and four buttons toward the neck line. The cuffs, collar and base of the skirt is made from burgundy ribbing. I added an additional diagonal seam across the front of the dress for interest (initially in case a zip was needed). And yes, it is a little Star Trekky!
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
