The C Dress

My C Dress is another New Look 6180, following on swiftly from the success of my B dress. When I had first completed my B Dress I felt that the shoulders didn’t sit as they should, so I cut the next size down for my C dress. This was probably a mistake, and even more so because I cut the actual paper pattern. Fail. The size down pulls a little across my shoulders, although seems ok everywhere else. 

Again, this pattern gave me chance to practise my button and collar techniques, plus I opted to add in proper pockets from another pattern, as well as inverted vs into the sleeves. I didn’t make a belt. The fabric is a cute Lewis and Irene print from the Knitting and Stitching Show in November, priced at £10pm and earning this dress the title of the Cornfield Dress – see how sweet the little harvest mice are?

  1. Love the fabric, I like the extra touches you’ve added like the sleeve ‘v’. I have to admit that I’d have cut the pattern too, I can’t be faffed with tracing patterns 🙂

    • Thank you! Yes the sleeves ‘V’ was tricky and isn’t perfect but is a nice touch especially at a distance! I’m not bad at tracing off indie patterns but the big 4 seem less precious somehow! ✂️

  5. Your dress is lovely! I have this fabric in my stash but in the green colour way. I was also thinking of making a shirtdress and I’m feeling inspired to get it out now that I’ve seen yours!

  6. I never trace patterns and it’s easy to add a little back into the sleeve, so not a fail at all. Sweet fabric and I like your individual touches like the ‘v’ detail.

#football #sport #sports #court #outdoors #optoutside #sky #clouds #bluesky #nightfall #twilight #bluehour #violet The landscape is changing and whilst the trees are still vibrant, many of the fields have been harvested and are looking drab. Looking at Wilfie's expression however, the surroundings don't detract from his enjoyment of the 10 mile run he just accompanied me on. He kept up perfectly and is now snoozing beside me. He's a good dog. •
