first Laure dress that I could hardly wait to make another - but real life intervened and when things got tough I didn't feel like sewing. Now that things have taken a turn for the better, I'm back at the sewing machine and loving it!
So this is the drop-waist version of the Laure, made in Three Cats
shweshwe, a traditional South African cotton fabric. There's not much
to say about this dress except that it's a great pattern with a great fit and I
love it just as much as the qipao. R showed me a special spot in a local
park that's full of lovely trees and we had a nice little wander, with
her pointing out items of interest and me clicking away.
The red cardigan is from this Japanese pattern book and was a nice easy sew. I used the same beautiful wool jersey I used for R's Arrietty dress and some scraps of red shweshwe for the facing. I think it goes perfectly with the Laure dress and it's also nice and cosy for autumn and winter.
