The fabric is a few years old so might be hard to find now.  It was a Timeless Treasures fabric - I think just called 'Era C', their no. 4965.

That's a lovely cossie - well done!  As far as I know, the master of pattern making with lycra is this guy http://www.patternschool.com/  There's so much helpful info on his site - even explaining how elastic behaves and why things ride up, and instructions for drafting a variety of patterns!  Agreed - I'd do a test run in the shower  Smiley

Thnaks very much for sharing your thoughts.  I do agree the sleeves need some change but I'm not sure what I'd do - initially I thought I'd like more billow above the cuff but I think that with the weight of the knit maybe the fabric would still just hang rather than puff out.... calls for some experimenting me thinks  Smiley

I think it's very neutral and very lovely.  Beautiful combination of colours, and I love the binding and the praire points - great job.

Hello people,

I haven't posted in ages.... I spent the last year doing a course in fashion technology - learning pattern making etc. so have been too busy to post Smiley 

So this is my own design and pattern - yay!   This is my favourite of the things I've made this year.  It's summer here now (in NZ) so I've only had one opportunity to wear it.  I'm looking forward to winter  Smiley.

So the top is a rib knit, the bottom is jersey knit.  I managed to squeeze the dress out of a little under 2 metres of fabric.  The front is sewn shut - buttons are decorative only.

I absolutely love dresses, but don't tend to wear them.  I either need to get realistic and start making trousers, or I need to just commit to wearing dresses!

Any comments/criticism gratefully received.

This is absolutely beautiful - and sooo clever.  The fabric feathers are incredible.  Superb work.

Beautiful!  What a terrific use of that fabric - and the buttons are perfect.
