Blue Wool Dress

This dress is a mix up of two patterns, the first used for the bodice is my favourite vintage pattern, and the second, a simple circle skirt.

The fabric is a gorgeous teal and navy wool with great softness and drape. Sadly I didn’t notice a flaw in the weave until after I had sewn on the skirt, but my solution to add three rows of decorative ric rac solved that problem, and I think brightens up an otherwise very plain dress.
As always more detail over on my blog. x
