August 2009

This was made as a gift for a very dear friend of mine, and converted from a t-shirt into a dress at her request, simply by adding about 6" to the length prior to starting to increase for the sleeves.

My gauge was a bit loose, and this is a very slouchy design, so it has heaps and heaps of positive ease. Just as well really, because by the time I got around to making it for her, she was about 6 months pregnant (and still able to fit into a small...)

Love love love the pima cotton. It makes a gorgeous fabric, and seemed so much more forgiving than the other cottons I've tried.
