(1) Another Winter Appropriate Knit Dress
|Knipmode Special 2013 - Dress #103 (on left)|
I was super excited by my recent Burda Cowl Sheath Dress (BS-11-2013-112) and realized I would really like to have another winter appropriate knit dress that can be used for layering with tights and jackets. Recent fabric splurges (well, is $3 ITY really a splurge?) left me inspired to sew a knit wrap dress, and right now I am leaning towards this pattern from Knipmode. I want something with close fitting sleeves (to be easily worn under jackets) and a wrap-style top. I think this may fit the bill, though my final pattern selection may change by the time I get around to making it. I haven't ever sewn from Knipmode before (I know, I know, shame on me!) and I think a knit pattern might be more forgiving while I am trying to decide on sizing.

This means I really need to make myself some more skating practice dresses, in addition to finishing up all the projects I didn't get to in November. Which, looking at my previous post, is a lot of them. At least the cocktail dress contest on Pattern Review might inspire me to finally get to work on my LBD!
