Love Like Blood

♫ ♪ Love Like Blood

I wanted to make a Plantain dress version out of this knit fabric, but I didn’t like combinations that I came up with, so I abandoned the project.. The fabric was still lying on a table, and I decided to make another dress with it.. I used pattern 124 from Burda 09/2012.. It is recommended for stable or elastic fabrics.. Although my fabric is knit, it’s not very stretchy.. And it is a bit sheer, so I have to wear slip underneath.. The pattern has many parts, but they are easy to sew.. Because of hand sewing it took me more time than usual to finish it.. I like how it turned out.. I would like to make another one with more suitable fabric..
