Another black & white garment! This is a dress I copied from one of my favorite dresses. I always think that sleeves are hard to copy from existing garments, so for the first time ever I drafted sleeves myself, pfew! According to the book I consulted, these are ‘cowl sleeves’. The dress is made of black&white stretch knit, which I bought in London when visiting my friends last week. There is a zipper in the back just for fun. The dress is super comfortable and I can already feel that I will wear it a lot! I am thinking of making a copy for my sister who will turn 24 in two weeks…
