M5974-dress

This is a thin "oniony knit" I purchased at Joann's a year ago. Think it's red and white? No, it's actually a dull grey. No worries. I have some grey "pearls" I'll wear with and a grey knit cardigan coat I am currently working on. I'll re-post when I'm finished. This pattern was a dream to work with. One inch seam allowance and a lot of hand holding. If you're fairly confident about your body and the fabric you're working with, then cut it one size smaller than usual. I didn't have to do a full bust adjustment! It's close to be the perfect knit dress.

I'm going to buy this pattern. It's the perfect dress. I love everything you've made. The colours are perfect for you and I would steal them from you if I could. I have been eyeing off a pair of grey patent leather slingbacks that would work with this dress.
