After a month and a half of work, here is my new dress.

It's done with knit, from the book Alabama Studio Studio + Design.



I'm a bit disappointed as my knit was not stretchy, and the dress is a tad small. But well, it's done so I better enjoy it !

Thanks to all for your nice comments, it's really nice to do.
I really like the meditative gesture.

I need to redo the collar and arms, but apart from that, I think I'm going to be really happy to wear it !!!
