I pulled this lightweight knit out of the Mood remnants box in LA, it's super light and very soft. I'm telling myself it's DVF remnant. Who knows, but I just really liked it at first sight. So naturally I turned over Thanksgiving prep to my boyfriend and sewed this up on Wednesday night:
Once again it's my Favorite Pattern Ever, the September Burda shift dress. I did my classic backwards upside down, retro-fitting construction by making the dress without a zipper, then realizing it needs a lining in order to work as a winter dress. Once I added the lining it then needed a zipper and... you get the drift. The fabric is slightly-overworked at the back seam and it's a bit botched to be frank. But who cares. It's cute and I like it and it is the perfect weight for a LA winter dress.
How did everyone's Thanksgiving go? I made it with only one confrontation with a relative who brought a dog that behaved badly and who promptly got in a huff when I chastised said dog.
