I wanted to try to make a special dress – and I started with a black wool top with long sleeves and cut it apart. I had different wool sweaters which I liked very much and I cut a part of each and I sewed it on the black top with special seams so it didn’t unraveled. I decorated with red round band and also with some 30mm wide wool band. For the collar and the skirt I used medium weight jersey. I used the hem of the blue sweater at the bottom of the dress.
