Its just been a while since I’ve blogged about it. I was busy making bags for my little Etsy shop
but now I’m back to the clothes.
I’ve tweaked my Merchant and Mills Trapeze pattern once again, to make a mini dress/tunic length. And the first thing I made from this new pattern was a dress for my works Christmas party. I made it from the textured black and white ponte roma that I made a top from from in the summer. I had a hunch it would make a good dress for a party. And I think I was right. Very happy with it indeed.
It was a nice easy make. The fabric is a joy to work with.
Here it is as party dress, I hope I’m not too old at the age of 45 to be wearing a mini dress like this. Don’t worry won’t wear it without tights, that was not a good look!
It also looks good as casual wear, worn with jeans and Uggs or Birkenstocks.
I probably prefer it worn casually but then again I prefer casual wear now a days anyway!
Hope you like it, I do.
perfect party dress, works great with your uggs too. I have the pattern out ready to cut tomorrow. Did you alter the neckline? I thought I’s do for a necklace hight with a zip at the back.
Thanks Ruth, no I didn’t alter the neckline as such, but I think on the jersey type fabric it comes out a little bigger, if that makes sense. Otherwise it is already quite high. X
