First attempt on a knit dress. For the pattern, I used the instructions from Pattern Drafting by Dressmaking (a Japanese book from the late 60’s) with a few errors. There’s no instruction on how to sew it, so I winged it. It was obviously incorrect because the inside of the collar, which I did last, ended up stretched out from the struggles. It’s a pretty easy one to make, despite the lack of instruction.
Polyester knit from a re-use craft supply depot, so inexpensive it’s perfect for trial projects.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
