I called this my Lucy Liu dress because it reminds me of some of the dresses she wears in a programme we’ve been watching recently – shift-type dresses. I like them.
So this started off as a Simplicity 3835 top, and it was only when I came to hemming it all that I visualised it as a dress. I’m not entirely sure of the ‘hospital’ blue of the skirt, but it was the best match. I added pockets for the first time ever, and learned a thing or two of what not to do next time.
Overall, I love it, and am now waiting for summer weather to wear it out.
Contrarily, I finally finished the second sleeve on my Ysolda cardigan. I don’t know why it took me so long. The Yoke was quick to knit up, and the body is now growing easily. I’m looking forward to finishing it and starting the next one. LOVE the construction.
