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.
