Swing dress

January 9, 2012

Here is a few pictures of Sense & Sensibility’s swing dress. A review on the pattern can be found on my blog.  To be truthful, I have been more pleased with other sewing projects. I strongly suspect the polyester in the wool blend is to blame for the skirt not draping nicely. I really need a brooch at the neckline as it gapes much too much left as it is. The dress isn’t fancy, but it will work nicely for everyday and I’m sure I will wear it, even if I’m not 100% satisfied.

A picture that says a lot of the true circumstances when taking photos in our family. Adolph’s tail in the foreground, Lipton’s ears and Mats thinking that if I’m sitting down, then I must want a cat in my lap.

  1. Your dress is really beautiful. I’m working on the same dress at the moment but i find it a bit difficult to understand all the technique-language as my main language is Norwegian. but I hope to work it out:-) Greeting from Anne Lise
