So I made a dress...

Hello guys - so I haven't really felt much like blogging lately, I guess its because I'm over winter and I just wait day light savings to start and spring to begin. I'm feeling a bit bleh. At least we haven't had any more earthquakes. Recently I made this dress - I don't have a fancy name for it though. Also we had to take these average photos inside as the sun had already gone down by the time I got home from work.
This dress is a simple tunic style dress made with knit fabric - I bought the fabric because I thought the print was kind of fun. It's actually the kind of print I would have wore back in about 2001, I think that's why I like it so much.
I actually cut the neckline of this frock a little bit big, it does have the tendency to slip off my shoulder a bit, but not too much. I do like wearing long sleeved dresses - lately I'm so over having to wear layers and layers of clothing!
 We tried to take one photo with a flash so that the pattern of the fabric was a little clearer - but it made my glasses look pretty weird!
I hope you all have been having a good week - its nearly September, which means its nearly spring - Hurrah!

Darling, you are such a sewing roll!
I just fixed a frock today where I'd made the neckline too wide! Ah, it happens!!!
Hey, blogging when you feel like it is perfectly acceptable! So glad the quakes have settled, hopefully you can relax and enjoy the Spring that is springing like a mad thing! XXX

You look great in that dress Trees and you look like you feel good in it too. As well as the print I love the colours in it. And I think the bigger neckline works, I like that slipping off a shoulder look, unfortunately I have shoulders like a docker so it doesn't suit me, sob! But it does suit you, so wear that dress to death! xx

Nice dress! I like the long sleeves and scoop neck - I think the kinda balance each other.

Knit fabric is great, so comfy. Beyond my sewing skills to handle it though. I take my hat off to you. :)
