cowl dress for my daughter

Added Nov 22, 2016

Great Yarmouth, ...






I had ordered this fabric (advertised as a jersey lining) some time ago and when it came I was surprised how thick and heavy it was. Didn’t know what to do with it at first, so it has been lying in a drawer ever since and only recently got dug up again and when my daughter saw it, she said she liked the material (a dark navy with little black squares) and I decided to make her a dress. She likes it and has had a few compliments when she wore it to work, so that makes her happy and me of course :-))

      aww, thanks Beccki! She has been wearing it quite a bit, so I guess that is a sign that she likes it too :-))

      thanks Mary! You know me, I am a sucker for cowl necks :-)) the colour is lovely, a shame it doesn’t show better in the photos :-((
      I have a few more projects for her planned, got a few fabrics from our friend on ebay (which no doubt some of which you will recognize)
