This is my take on McCalls 8085 and the fabric was gifted from Minerva.com, you can order both fabric and pattern direct from them by reading my post on this link Navy Crepe textured knit fabric and patterndetails
The fabric is very flowing and drapes well. It lends itself very nicely to tops, dresses and skirts.
These necklaces are fun and easy to make. Simply make a tube of your fabric just large enough to push a polystyrene ball into, push it to the middle and then start to alternate further balls with either a knot or a wide holed bead.
Either tie in a bow at the back or stitch the ends together. Have fun adding multiple rows.
The beads on the tie belt need to be pulled off before washing
The orange tone of the wood beads complements my fabric perfectly
I do not wear long dresses normally but I thought that it would be useful to have one in my wardrobe.
It can be worn with trainers, sandals or boots and so it is.versatile enough to be worn all year round
I felt the dress rather unexciting on its own and the addition of my necklaces, a short Cardigan and boots turns it into a dress which I love and that I will enjoy wearing
Thank you Minerva.com for this fabric
