Tie front Sheath Dress

 The apple-tree flowers make me Happy! 🍎 
For this dress I have combined turquoise and cerise sweatshirt fabric.
These colors make me smile because it reminds me 
of the first sewing project I ever made.

When I was around 18-20 years old I was together with my mother at Hauske's clothing factory and I was allowed to buy 2 tops with long sleeves and turtleneck, cerise and turquoise color.
I made tank-tops with cutting of the sleeves and turtleneck, then I zig-sac over the armhole and neck. Voila, then I had two new tops! Since it was modern with leg-warmers and headband, the sleeves and the turtleneck were also used. I got three things out of a top with long sleeves, and I was very proud!



 Actually, the tie can be knotted once or twice,
but since the fabric it a bit heavy I like to knot it only once.
