This issue, 08/2017, is one of the best I’ve bought lately because I don’t know what I don’t like from it and the only problem is to decide what to sew first:-)
The Tie Neck Dress got the chance from the first sight:-) I liked the pattern very much and it seems to be one of the best balanced in proportions and details model.. .Although I lengthened it for few cm. I also cut the skirt bias. Just had enough fabric and thought it would be nice.
I surely recommend it. If the weather is still fine, I would wear it all the time.
My ideas of the sewing are here .

The cape is an old project.

      Thank you very much, Mary. It is really very nice pattern… Reminded me some models from my childhood. I felt very inspired.
