Gorgeous in grey.

ImageThis has become one of my favorite dresses. Originally, I made for Lindy Hop, since the fabric gave me thirties to fifties vibes. However, lately I find myself wearing the dress almost daily.

The woven wool is cool (yes, wool is not necessarily hot, it just keeps your body an even temperature), it’s a blend so I can rinse it and hang dry it in just a few hours.

I like the simple, but classy design of the pattern, looks kind of boring on the sheet (ImageBurda 2965), but turns out really nice, I’ve made several, so I know. I made the short version, but without pockets, and with a full back .

I made three slits in the back instead of just one, as well as two in the sides, to make it more interesting and for variation.
