I can’t believe I completely forgot to post this on here. (I managed to post it everywhere else!!)
So, it was a fairly close run vote, but Kath’s Fulwood dress won in the end. I do love the look of those pleats turned into gathers and have been inspired to make a version of my own. More on that soon.
In the meantime a well deserved congratulations to Kath.
Looking for that perfect in-between-seasons project? My Longley cardigan pattern might just be for you and Fiona of Diary of a Chainstitcher blog has just made a gorgeous version which she’s blogged about along with a review of the pattern.
Spoiler: I think she loved it! Here are some of the lovely things Fiona says about the pattern.
“When the construction is as well thought out as this getting professional looking results is very satisfying.”
“The finishing of the Longley is a real selling point for me and I highly recommend it as a cracking pattern to try if you are looking for a similar style.”
Read her full review here. You can also read more reviews of the Longley pattern here and get your copy of the pattern here.
