When it’s cold outside I love to wear wool garments. I had this long grey skirt and I decided to make a dress in combination with other garments. I found this red sweater in my wardrobe and cut of the sleeves and the neck (this is a mixture of cotton/wool). To “fresh” it a bit up I found some lilac rib jersey from my stash. I have used the waist of the skirt for the collar and I turned the sleeves upside down. My sewing machine is good for sewing embroideries, and I have sewn this for decoration. I have used some red and black wool band as well. The decoration band with pearls I got in a bouquet once and decided to use it as a belt in the waist :)
