I have two items to share today. I finished a dress and a cardigan as part of the OAL hosted by Lauren from Lladybird and Andi from Untangling Knots.
First up is Simplicity 1803. I really enjoyed sewing this dress up. It was nice and easy and Lauren had a great tutorial going on her blog.
I am not sure what the fabric is, it is soft and drapey and a pleasure to sew with. It has a soft suede feel to it. As I mentioned previously, both the pattern and the fabric came from a Sewing Meet-up. So basically free!!
The waist is a little loose, but I think I will make a tie belt and that should help.
The cardigan is Andi's own design, the Myrna. It turned out bigger than I had anticipated, I know there was an issue with the test swatching of the pattern, so that could have been it. I am tempted to pop it in the dryer and see what happens, even though it is not unwearable as it is. It was a pleasure to knit up so I think I will make another one anyway in a different colour.
The hardest part of this cardigan was choosing the buttons! I needed up going with off-white one is the shape of a flower.
All in all I am happy with my creations!
