I’ve admired this pattern for a long time and it was on my wish list. When Pattern Review offered me a free pattern as a thank you for managing a contest, I finally got my Kalle!
My blood has thinned after 15 years in the southern U.S. and I now wear sweaters when it’s 12C. Which means I now sew proper sweaters, not just cardigans to stop the chill of the a/c.
What I need is a basic black handbag … but how boring would it be to sew a black handbag? I made something less utilitarian, but more fun.
There are plenty of raves for this pattern in the blogosphere. Now I understand why!
Plenty of mornings I want wardrobe choices to be mindless. And what’s easier than a dress!
If you’ve read my blog in the past you know that I don’t like doing FBAs because I am too impatient to do all that tracing, cutting, taping. It seems like each Indie pattern designer has their own design sense, so while perusing patterns I finally took a serious look at Cashmerette and did some shopping.
