Chilly weather

With the sudden drop in temperature it’s got me thinking about nice winter colours. From the ever increasing fabric stash I dug out this lovely rich aubergine jersey.

  

The Bella dress pattern is one of the great selection from Love Sewing Mag. It’s a simple pattern with only 4 pieces so really quick to put together. Plus the sleeves are attached before the side seams are stitched making the construction so straightforward.

It calls for a side zip but due to the stretch fabric I have found I don’t need one as I can easily pull it on without! The well placed darts give the curvy shape and the flared sleeve gives an unusual finish. 

  
This dress feels perfect for this chilly autumnal weather and I can see it layered up with legging, long sleeved tee & a waistcoat once the winter really sets in. ❄️
