It’s jungle January! led into the wild by Anne of Pretty Grievences, a month long safari. A chance to indulge in that wonderful neutral, animal print. So lets go…..
This is a tried and true pattern for me, Simplicity 1653, a mock wrap dress for knits.This version has the capped sleeve, much more flattering than the flappy 70s-look version I made for the Tessuti challenge! The fabric, a rather slinky (dare I say) cat-like jersey, has been in my stash for ages. These guys have been around for a while too.
The twin needle was a breeze this time (pheew!), by using the appropriate needles (ball point jeresy) and also a double sided fuseable hemming tape. This helped hugely holding the hems, including the neckline hem, in place and providing body and stability.
Anyone else heading to the jungle?
