I saw a lot of tartan dresses as part of the fall trend so I jumped to make something for myself. I chose a wool blend to make this and I used a pattern from New Look 6141. I cut a size 8 but it was too big and I altered it by taking an inch in from each side seam. Easy project like usual and fun to make like always.
Last photo of Rihanna’s dress was an example of what I’d seen for fall.
1.5 yards of tartan wool, 20 in zip, thread, hook and eye
