I'm blue, da ba dee da ba da

Again, a very quick project. Let's call this the 'blue patchworkdress'.
This knitdress was very simple to sew. It was the first time I tried a pattern from Diana Mode and it does not disappoint at all. I used my normal alterations and it fits perfectly.
The fabric looks like patchwork but is actually printed that way.

I needed a simple pattern to let the fabric speak for itself and somewhat straight lines on the sides to match with the vertical lines in the pattern. I think this one just ticks all the boxes.

I'm gonna wear this with a narrow blue belt (which I still have to buy..) as I want to emphasize the waist a bit more and break the vertical lines which probably make me look longer than I already am.

I made sure the prints matched at the sideseams. As the sideseams are not completely straight it is unavoidable to have a wedge-like part there. But this way it doesn't bother me.

                     The neckline drapes beautifully:


Yep..I'm very content with this.

What I'm not so thrilled about is the august-issue of KnipMode. It just doesn't do anything for me. There's a new lady in charge and I hope this has nothing to do with it (because she'll be there probably for quite some time).

Ah well, let's not jump to conclusions too soon.

Happy sewing everyone!
