So this is the first of several finished items this year. If you follow me on instagram you will have seen this already. I am all out of order on my posting as I have already posted a couple of my Simple Sew makes, which I made since this dress.
I cut this out between Christmas and New Year, and made it up in the beginning of January, using a lovely ponti knit that I got from Geoff Rosenberg/Stitch Fabrics. I thought the pattern on the fabric would be best shown off in a simple style dress, and decided to use the McCalls 6886 pattern that came free with a sewing magazine at some point last year.
It is a very simple dress with just the front, back and sleeves. The neck line finish was just a turn and stitch, but I decided I wanted a cleaner finish, so drafted a facing .
Any way, thats about it for this make. I am sure I will make this again at some point - there are neckline and arm variations, so lots of scope for very different looking dresses.
