Winter for me is the opportunity for wool overload. I absolutely love it! Mood has the most luxe wool in every shade and texture on the planet. This medium weight suiting wool with a bit of one-way stretch and a lot of drape make for the perfect fitted dress and pants. It sews easily, irons well and fits comfortably. At only $13.99 a yard, it definitely won’t last.
The dress was made using the bodice of vintage McCalls 2718 with the following alterations:
-Removed the neck band option
-Added a gathered sleeve
-Added 20″ back zipper
-Added 8″ zippers to the wrist
The Skirt of the dress was made using my trusty pencil skirt pattern with the following alterations:
-Added a 9″ back split
-Added a 1″ bottom band
The fur trimmed blazer was made a while ago here
Absolutely love the dress!!!! and love the new look of your blog too!!!!
The link isn’t working for the fur blazer.
The links with this new format are barely visible. On my lap top, it looks like there were a lot of spaces between the black type. And when I clicked on the link for the most recent post, it sent me to the second most recent post. The only thing I can think of is the pictures change too quickly.
Hello I am new to sewing. Do you have to use lining in a dress like ths?
