Hello my friends!
I took photos for two blog posts today and since I have already blogged about this pattern before, I decided that this one was the easiest to start with since I didn't have that much new to add.
It IS Monday after all!
It's funny how this one looks bigger than the two previous ones. Although this is also French Terry like the other two, this must be a more stretchy type.
I decided that I wanted to put the turtleneck on this dress from the sister pattern 09/2016#124. I found this knit rib in my stash and the color was peeeerfect....but the recovering was not. The neckline is quite wide, so I needed a knit that both can stretch out to that wide neckline and at the same time recover back to my neck. This was not it, haha. So I couldn't get the 'real' high turtleneck, it simply didn't look good. So I shortened it and I totally like this too. It actually looks the same as the model in the pattern listing but I think they have double folded her's?!
Of course if I had been bit more on the ball I would have made the neckline smaller while cutting but...well, I wasn't!
You can almost see here that the beige fabric is in fact golden. It was a leftover piece and I'm so happy that I ended up with something for myself in with this fabric. It was originally all intended to be for me but then two swan dresses needed saving from my poor fabric calculation skills and I ended up sacrificing it for that project. Read more about it HERE in case you are interested, ha.
Pretty plain from the back.
And I think that's all there is to say which I didn't already say the last time I blogged about this style. Maybe I could add that if there is a time where you want to match up some seams that sleeve to front bodice stripe is a good fight to take. It will really stand out if they don't meet up.
