Cosy Heather weather.
So, finally got around to making a Sewoverit Heather dress. I knew I would want to make it as soon as I first saw it. It's a jersey, panelled dress with pockets. What more could you want for a cosy winter, easy-to-throw on dress.
ponte roma jersey from Dragonfly fabrics. It's a viscose/poly/elastane mix in the colour rosewood, ideal for this pattern and I see there are some lovely new colours in Dragonfly that I may be tempted by. You could, of course, make it in a couple of different colours if you like that look.
It's a great pattern to make up with super instructions, nothing tricky at all really. I made the size 16 and I think it's a good fit. I do get a little bit of pooling there at the back, but I don't think it's too bad, not that bothered by it. I would say that the sleeves are a tad narrow, so if your arms are even remotely wider than the average you might want to add some width to the sleeve.
Lola coat from Sew Over It. I might just have to make a light wool version of the Lola for winter. Anyway, the Heather is as great as I'd hoped, a very comfortable, easy to wear comfy, jersey dress... love it!
