I wanted to squeeze in one more summery project before autumn sets in, so I picked a very easy pattern to make.
I used a really soft piece of viscose/rayon with berries print and a poly taffeta for the belt/sash.
I made a small bust adjustment, a small waist adjustment and a petite adjustment to the pattern, as I wanted a reasonable fit out of this pullover dress.
I am still feeling unsure about it – I am not convinced that this loosely fitted silhouette is great for my figure, even after all the alterations. Perhaps I will alter the pattern a bit more for my next version.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
