A while a go my sister and I stumbled upon an op-shop that let us 'out the back' to rummage through about 30 banana boxes full of fabric. Oh yes please!!! We ended up with a banana box to bursting to take home between us and had lots of fun divvying up the goodness.
First up I had this green fabric which has a slightly woolly feel and is stretchy.
This pattern is from Closet Case files and called Nettie.
This dress is a perfect one for anyone who is new to sewing or people who haven’t worked much with stretch. I really like the neckline which is cut separately and stretched to fit. The instructions for this are nice and clear and the result sits really well. This is one of my bug bears with a stretch neck – often they end up wavy and this isn’t the case at all with this pattern.
I've been doing quite a bit of making lately - whoop! So hopefully that will translate into more sharing here, just in case there is still anyone out there in blogland reading!
love you more than a stretchy waistline xxx
