I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to do for a holiday dress this year. Our family holiday celebrations are usually fairly casual, but the school that I am on the board of holds an art and music celebration, and last year I made a nice Appleton dress.
Pattern Review: Cozy Wrap Cardigan by Hallå Patterns
The Cozy Wrap Cardigan pattern is a bit of a misnomer here because I did not actually choose to sew the cardigan view. Instead I chose the "Cross Front Sweater" view, which uses all the same pieces, except the bands are crossed at the front and then attached into the side seams. Having just finished my Cashmerette Dartmouth wrap top, I was really drawn to this similar wrap style look.
Pattern Review: Dartmouth Top by Cashmerette
The Dartmouth top by Cashmerette is the second item on the #makenine2019, and one I was excited to work on. I have a RTW wrap top that I love from the brand Soft Surroundings, and while it "fits" in the places I need it to, it is definitely not perfect.
