Knitted Blue Dress = Knitted Blue Cardigan with a Grey Marl Trim
This is a cute little blue dress that a friend gave to me as they were throwing things out!
I did wear it but decided it was a bit clingy for me. I really loved the colour and the softness of the knit!
So I thought maybe a cute cardigan…
Cutting it straight down the middle I opened it, added a bind and then was going for a belt in the middle.
Half way through my project I decided to make use of the cowl neckline rather than get rid of it (sorry it is not a great photo on the left so not easy to see).
After I decided to use the neckline I added the tie/belt I made to the top to create an Audrey Hepburn neckline.
Here are the steps
|I have followed the knit line
(be careful not to pull to much when you do this)
|Quickly had your bind and pin it into place
so it doesn’t stretch
|Ready for your machine.
I machined one side of the bind.
|And hand stitch the other side.|
|My belt that turned in to a neckline tie.|
