I found a picture of a wonderful knitted dress on the internet that I would love to have, and since I had this knitted fabric I would like to make a similar, so I have used a self drawn pattern for this dress. I had this melange red fabric which I fell in love with. I think it’s a mixture of viscose/polyester. I have used it together with a wool blend fabric for the waist, the cuffs on the sleeves, around the neck and at the hem. I did use the raw edges fabric at the hem. I have also decorated the wool blend fabric with embroidery with silver tread to make it nicer. I’m very happy with the result ;) the last photo shows the dress I found on the internet.
Viscose/polyester and wool blends.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
