Kate - Version 1 and 2

Hello lovely seamsters and others who find their way here today! Hope you are all well. I'm rather excited as I am getting new carpet laid as I type, which means I am surrounded by stuff, literally trapped in my kitchen and unable to do much for a couple of hours. So what's a girl to do but catch up on some blogging?!

Finished - Karl!

A couple of weeks ago Monika from Schneidernmeistern patterns put out a call on Instagram asking for English speaking seamstresses to make up her new pattern and check her English instructions. The pattern is Karl, a knit dress with a funnel neck, and being rather partial to a funnel neck I put my hand up to give it a whirl.

It's been the coldest, wettest spring here in Melbourne, and I suspect I probably wouldn't have been as interested to make this up if we'd had a warm spring! But I was freezing, and that funnel neck sucked me right in!
