I think this is a bit of a marmite dress, you love it or hate it .... on the whole I love it! Not my usual style at all, and my hemlines seem to be going up as I get older. This is The Great British Sewing Bee Fashion with Fabric Drapey Knit Dress
I love the sleeves with all their bagginess which then goes into a slim cuff.
The construction is quite strange and rather fantastic. The one piece back showcases a large pattern.
I cut a size medium and didn't make any adjustments except to leave out the pockets which I felt might spoil the line.
Whilst I was in the mood for knits I made another Seamwork Oslo. It's not as snuggly as my last one (which I made last Christmas), but this was fairly cheap mustard boucle knit which I bought at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching show.
The colour is great and I've worn it several times already.
With no lining, it does only take a few hours to make.
Strangely the stretch on this was vertical and I should have cut it that way, so the cuffs are a little tight, but still wearable.
I hope you all enjoyed Christmas. I had a lovely time with Dan and Gemma who made a lovely Christmas lunch.
Just to prove I have worn the cardigan (though here with my Coco)!
And of course, lots of stokes with the lovely Monty!
Wishing you all a wonderful 2016, now if I can just get rid of this cold!
