The self-drafted 'wild cat' shift dress
February 16, 2018
I wanted to make a new frock to wear to a family gathering in chilly February in Northern Ireland! I found this rather wild print fabric in Ditto, Brighton and thought it would be fun.. I definitely wanted sleeves and pockets (of course!) and so created a semi fitted short shift. It is a pull on number, so no fastenings involved.. It was relatively quick to make and I'm pleased with the result. Teamed up with thick tights, a fitted cardi and some jewellery it was ideal for the party!
