The Monthly Stitch challenge this month. The fabrics for these were my Christmas spend and are really nice quality. The dress is the Ultimate Wrap dress by Sew Over It and was a nice easy make. I made size 14 and altered it by adding 7" to the length which meant I didn't do the curved hem. I also did two small darts in the back neck to remove gaping and made a self-fabric binding to finish the neckline rather than using the facing and I like the neat finish this gives (you can see this in the close-up). I love this dress, it is the perfect weight for autumn/winter and is easy to wear.
The top is the Ensis Tee by Papercut patterns. The fabric is a rayon lycra mix with a stretch lace for the shoulder contrast. I made size medium with variation 1 sleeves (love the cuffs) and variation 2 hemline which is more flattering for me. The only alteration was to take in each side seam by about 1.5 cm to make it less boxy and more fitting. By the way, Bess the chook was hanging around my feet so I thought she could be in the photo too!
These are some of my favourite makes, clothes I love and feel good in. Wendy xx
