I love this pattern, it is so cosy and is completely different in the different fabrics. The first one I made is from a sweater knit, bought from Abakhan at Preston. If you haven't been to this shop you don't know what you are missing, most of the fabrics are bought by the kilo. This was incredibly light so 2 metres cost less than £8 and is a fabulous duck-egg blue, my favourite!
I cut a size medium initially, and as you can see this version turned out quite loose and could probably have been a little more fitted. I found a vintage button to put on the neck.
You can see more of the details on the second version (which I really love). The fabric is probably the best quality ponte I have every bought. It is from Fabric Godmother, not cheap at £16 a metre (so much more expensive than the last one) but it is so thick and warm and I know I will get loads of wear from this dress. I think it would make a good Molly for those of you wanting a substantial version and I have already made a Coco from a black stripe similar fabric .... perfect.
So definitely recommending this pattern and it is easily made over a weekend (mm a red one would be rather fantastic for Christmas and comfortable, plenty of pie space).
