i have had the pleasure of doing my first ever dress and made it a birthday gift for a very dear and lovely friend! as i wanted to make sort of a wrap dress, i used the pattern of simplicity number 7006 R5 with a vew modifications and i am really pleased with the result…….. my friend was very happy too!
the material is a very soft slightly strechy wool jersey in black and white (almoust tweed like!) and it gives the dress just the right swing!
