Orange & Pink πŸ§‘πŸ’—

We need to wear colors in wintertime! This model is for knit fabric, but I chose to use double woven jersey fabric. The dress has a narrow collar and since I love to mix different colours,  I decided to use pink for the inner collar and the sleeves.   I have iron vliseline-band for the shoulders- and the neck-seam. The upper front seam are stitched together. I have also iron vliseline for the inner-collar. The skirt are cut, but I decided to finish the skirt with pink at the hem. The shoulders are stitched together, and the collar are stitched in place. I hand-stitched the inner collar in place at the back. The sleeves are stitched together. I under-stitched the collar so it will stay in place. The sleeves are stitched in place, and I have made orange sleeve bands as a finish. The skirt is rather wide, and I used an invisible rubberband at the inside  of the waistline so it should stay in place. BurdaStyle pattern #115 11/2021

Wool dress with Collar!

This is a pattern from BurdaStyle November -23. I liked the detail with the collar, and decided to try the pattern. The dress in the magazine is made with viscose fabric,  but I have used Merinowool that is great this time of year! For the collar I have used courtelle jersey that's a bit steady than normal jersey. At first I stitched the inserts at front panel. The collar is sewn together with two layers, and then I attatched it to the V-neck. The finished collar looks like a suit jacket collar.  Then I stitched the facing around the neck. I inserted side-pockets at the side seams. Sleeves has to be attatched. I used a double needle to finish the sleeve hem and th hem of the dress. It's a very cozy dress and I love to wear it, both in the office and at home :) BurdaStyle pattern #125 11/23

Merinowool Dress ❄

I wanted to have a warm and nice dress for wintertime! I have tried this pattern earlier when I made another  Knitted Dress . Sometime I just have to try the pattern over again with other fabric,  and for this dress I have used merino wool fabric.   At first I iron vliseline tape at the front. I iron vliseline on the two outher parts of the collar as well. The collar parts are stitched together.  I have overlocked the seam around the collar. - and of course my name-tag at the back :) I stitched the side seams, and the sleeves. I have overlocked and hand-stiched the hem and the hem-sleeve. I like to have the collar open and omitted the buttons at the finish of the collar.  BurdaStyle 01/2021
