So, MMM16. Guys, I’m out. With work, and the play, and having a life (or trying to), I just actually can’t prioritise taking photos every day of what I’m wearing. Maybe next year…
But, here’s something at least. I whipped up this lovely merino dress using Butterick 3551, a 90s pattern I picked up for $1 in Wellington. It’s made from beautiful NZ Merino from The Fabric Store.
I made a few adjustments: a dropped waist, rather than a raised one; binding the neck rather than facing it; and no zip – please 90s pattern, overkill much?! Other than that, all pretty much standard.
Except for one thing, I looked at the wrong view when purchasing the fabric and purchased the amount for the short dress rather than the long one! Oops. Some rather fussy cutting ensued and it now has the design feature of a much narrower front skirt panel than in the pattern. Winning.
