Remember the pattern mash up of Nettie and Flora, or the Nora as I liked to call it? Well today I'm showing you slightly tweaked version of that pattern love child. It's my Nora muslin revamped.
If I'd used some crappy knit that probably would have been the end of it. Instead I keep starting at that pile of green knit thinking, "It's almost wearable and there are decently sized fabric scraps to work with. Why not use those problem solving brain cells?"
in this dress.
When I tried on this dress to check the sleeves it was instant love, just like the dress in this fabric last year. Oh my lord, the fabric is magical! Why hadn't I bought 10 yards of this fabric? What am I gonna do next year? Crap, need more magical fabric and or a time machine to buy more of this magical fabric.
For now I'm contenting myself with wearing this dress on a weekly basis. It goes with half of my Luxulite brooches and is comfy as all get out. Note to self, buy solid colored jerseys once in a while. It's not a crime to have a layering base some times. Don't you agree Desmond.....Desmond? (He just runs off to play with worms.)
P.S. I took these photos right off the "main drag" of my local town center. It was the first time that I had a lot of foot traffic and consequentially gawkers around while taking blog photos. So if I look kind of stiff or weird in these photos that's why.
