Wool Cowl Neck Dress

I made this dress for a Minerva Crafts fabric showcase. Initially, I wanted to use a Donna Karan for Vogue dress pattern, but the fitting turned out to be too complicated as the pattern wasn’t suited for this stretchy knit wool fabric.

My fabric was very stretchy, so I omitted the back zip.

    i agree with Liliv…perfect fabric!!….i traced this last season i think and never made it….you have inspired me to put it back on the list for Fall (which lets face it in sewing terms isnt that far off :) )…i have some wool jersey in stash and having seen yours am thinking that would be perfect!

      You should try this! It’s a very quick sew and the fit is flattering!

      I can only recommend the pattern. It’s made for tweed though, so you might consider cutting it out a size smaller if using stretch fabric as I did.
