When one isn't enough - Another Allie Olson Highlands Wrap Dress

April 8, 2018

Do you ever have times when you make a pattern and just can't wait to make another?  That was me with the Highlands Wrap Dress by Allie Olson.  I finished my first one and by the next weekend I was working on another.

Given that I'm trying to work from my stash this year I picked out a large floral rayon I purchased from Spotlight in the boxing day sales.  It was a tight squeeze to get it out of the two metres I had.  To get it out I made the sleeveless version and used the shorter length which I'd worked out after my first version.

I was a bit worried this one would come out a bit too seventies but I think it's just 70's enough. The large floral and the style of the dress could have caused problems but I think it really works.

Anyway, there really isn't much more I can say that isn't in my previous post, all I know is that this won't be my last, I'm planning a maxi version for formal night on a cruise I'm going on in a few months.
