Pattern: New Look 6176
Fabric: Brushed cotton from Birmingham meat market
|Bunnies, ducks, pigs, horses, flowers, houses, trees...very grown up|
I like the dress, probably mostly because of the fabric. The fit isn't great and I did bring it in a bit when inserting the zip, but I think it's overall a size too big so it doesn't look brilliant. A waist belt certainly helps.
I would like to make the pattern again but I'm thinking a smaller size and a heavy jersey might see better results.
All that said, it's cute, I've enjoyed wearing it so far and I think it's a good addition to my sadly lacking weekend wardrobe. It's a beautiful autumn day today complete with blinding sun, bracing wind, and pelting rain. Photos were taken on a lovely canal walk before I stuffed myself full of jacket potato and cake at a tea room. Happiness is.
