Waistcoat and Dress



 I fell in Love with this wool fabric
 and it's very special with all these threads. 
The pattern is from a Norwegian sewing magazine. 
It's lined with black satin and I made loops for
 the buttons since they are rather big. 


This dress is made of knitted wool which are very warm and soft to wear.
Since the fabric is knitted I omitted the zipper at the back.
I found the pattern in a Sabina magazine. 
I think it's a great color for Cecilie :)

  1. Hi,
    That looks very cozy! I have exactly the same wool material as your vest, but planning to make a dress. Would you have any tips for this material - did you prewash? Was it easy to sew with?
    thanks

  2. Hi Sri,That's nice to hear :) I didn't prewash, and I don't think it's necessary, but maybe it will be a bit heavy for a dress. Anyway, I'm sure it will be nice! Wishing you good luck!
