And finally a use for my finer handwoven fabrics – a tunic-style dress to wear under a merino with tights. The fabric was woven in 2012 and is the first of my finer weight fabrics to be made up. I laid my pattern on the bias to get a little stretch, which has meant seams down the back and front as well as the sides, but it has also given a beautiful drape, so not really an issue. I dyed some paj silk for the facings and now just need to make a necklace to go with it – oh, and hem it!
And now I have 2! Plus enough left over to make a pair of handwarmers. The first time I have used this yarn and really love it – colours are so cool!
