As you may or may not know, I'm an avid fan of The Kate Dress by Sew Me Something. I've made this same pattern in a variety of fabrics, and worn them year round - and so it was a no-brainer that I chose Kate for last year's OWOP* Challenge too. (Have a wee peek here if you missed that post. )
But as I'm now waiting ever so impatiently for Jules to put the finishing touches to a new SMS pattern (coming this Spring - yay, can't wait . . . I got to try on the sample and I LOVE it),
I thought I'd make another Kate . . . or two. . .
|The long . . .|
The longer version falls just above my knees and will be lovely with leggings or tights in winter, or suntanned pins in summer, but I thought it would be fun to make a much shorter version as a pretty white top for summer too. And I'd been looking for an excuse to use this pretty lace-edged bias binding . . .
|. . . and the short.|
It's a bizarre weather day here - one moment the sun's out and the next, it's bucketing rain so please forgive the poor lighting in the pics.
Oh, and on a slight tangent: is anyone else going to the Spring Knitting & Stitching Show at Olympia in London next week ?
'til next time,
