I’m out of the closet! There’s been much lurking on my behalf on this brilliant site, but now i am declaring myself out! And what better an outfit to come out with than this purple woolen beauty!

I made this using simplicity 4808 in a wool fabric (i think 100%) that i got for an absolute bargain.

I have admired that pattern before, and it’s awesome to see it sewn up! Welcome, and your dress is lovely!
