Alabama Chanin A-Line dress

It took months of hand-stitching, but it’s finally finished!

As you can see, the pattern is very simple, just 4 panels.  I altered for fit, mostly taking in the skirt volume a good amount.  I also raised the neckline.  It’s still a full dress, very swingy.

It’s all about the stenciling and hand embroidery.  This stencil is called New Leaves.  The fabric is a knit from Fine Fabrics in Atlanta.

I’m hooked!  I love these garments!  More to come soon, I’ve been stitching a scarf with some remaining stenciled fabric.

Also, I did manage to get some pics of me wearing my Brooklyn Tweed sweater:

This is the only picture that really showcases the hi-low hem, which I love.  More to come!
