Description

The dress I knew I needed is now safely in my wardrobe. Phew! And thank heavens I have my sewing mojo back! This is a great dress for me – all it needs is a statement necklace and a pair of killer heels and you are good to go!

I made this ponte knit dress using McCall’s 5975. Awesome pattern, with a lovely slim fit. Highly, highly recommend it, and it’s extremely customisable, too, as it comes with different neckline and skirt options.

You can check it out on my blog, Jorth!

    You’re like a colorful Audrey Hepburn! I love it :) and it is always nice to get mojo back after a spell of being, well, mojo-less :)

      Any comparisons to Audrey Hepburn are fine by me!

      Thanks! I love the necklace too, although it weighs a ton!
