So nice she made it twice - Simplicity 2694
Janet's back after a wee sewing hiatus with these two beauties. The pattern is Simplicity 2694 - a Project Runway number - and the fabric is Primaluna, a beautiful, felted cashmere (10%)/wool(70%)/poly (20%) blend that's available to order at all stores.
The two dresses are made up in Viola and Winter White colourways. Both fabrics were purchased from our remnant table so Janet had to play around with some of the pattern pieces to suit the fabric lengths available. You'll see that her sleeves and collar are a little different to the pattern options. In both dresses, she used the selvedge as hem.
