A summer project… at last!
Green at top (shoulder saddle + sleeves + neckline) White & cream stripes only at top part to enhance shoulders…..
something in between a tunic or a dress? cap sleeves.. something light and airy…
The shoulder saddle was quite annoying… I had to redo the sleeves 2-3 times to get it right! But I like the enhancement of the shoulders with the green saddle + sleeves… next time I am going to use another texture stitch though (this one is a simple slip sts pattern)… it really made the short row construction of the sleeve cap unnecessarily hard!
First time I used darts in the front and the back this extensively to shape the dress… I really like the “tailored” result!
And the light cotton is incredible after washing… very soft and comfy - perfect for summer!!! :)
I blogged about this tunic/dress here
