Cream Dress

This is a dress from Ottobre, Issue Winter 2010.  It calls for a lightly felted wool but I made it out of a quality cream ponte knit.  It is a fast sew.  Satisfying.  I love the ruffly trim at the neck and the wide turtleneck collar.  I’m interested to see how it fits on.  I think if I made it again out of a knit I would try to omit the zipper entirely.  I imagine there is enough give and this collar is wide enough to pull it over, which would make this dress insanely quick.  It is a size 128 for Bird.  Hopefully it stays clean longer than one wear.   IMG_9871 IMG_9872
