These Ottobre names crack me up sometimes. Maybe they just don’t translate well? Anyway, odd name, cute dress.
This is a very simple knit dress with v-neck and interesting bound pockets. The fabric is a double knit ponte from Fabric Mart. It’s black with light purple polka dots. I used a green knit binding for the pockets and the neckband. I think it turned out rather cute.
The fit is loose and comfortable. I’ll wear this with tights and boots to work. It’s a tad on the short side. I added my standard 1” above the bust for my long torso too. On my next version, I may actually add an inch to the length.
I made a size 34, their smallest size. I mostly fit in that size range when you measure everything out. After the dress was done, I ended up taking a good two inches out of the back. My waist measurement is a couple inches less than their size 34.
Overall, another Ottobre win. I still need to do my Burda Challenge for September! I also just received a bunch of zippers from ZipperStop. I’m going to make a few Jalie 2795 hoodies. It’s getting chilly here and I need some cozy clothes!!!
