NL 6429


After spending so long on the coat, I wanted a quicky project. Voila! A knit dress that I'll wear on a business trip this week. I cut it out last night and finished it up this morning. This is the second time I've made this pattern and I really love the style. I'm not sure that I love the sleeve length on this version, however. It hits about 2" above the wrist. Next time, I will shorten or lengthen so it's either full length or 3/4 length. But not changing this one.

The particulars:

NL6429, View B
Fabric: Floral Medallion poly knit in black/white from Gorgeous Fabrics. I don't think it's available any longer.

Bonnie, That dress is even better the second time. I love the long sleeves, it looks just right for fall/winter. But you live in CA, right? That means you don't need the long sleeves. Sigh......sometimes I can go so envious over that. :) I think I need to add this dress to my collection. Your choice of fabric is what sets it off.
