As I have said before about knitting, I sometimes have a hard time finding clothes that fit the way that I want them to, look the way that I want them to, and are made out of fabrics that I don't absolutely hate. And on top of that, there is the constant struggle to wear something somewhat chic, not too trendy, and just a little bit unique to help me show my personal sense of style.
I found this dress pattern from Vogue Patterns -- I have made a few alterations - like how the sleeves fit, I hate elastic in sleeves. For the dress fabric itself, I used a beautiful green fabric from Yuwa from their Sketch Flowers collection that I got from Purl.
The dress came together quickly, and since I got to alter the pattern to my personal measurements, it fits just as well as I could have dreamed that it would.
The only thing that is funny, is that it has such a spring tone to it, and it snowed all weekend while I made it. Oh well.--
