The beige dress

Remember this woollen dress I posted about last year?

It is now finally completely finished! Can you spot the difference?

Right! Pocket slits!

Not only convenient for easily reaching your purse, also warm for your hands!

The slits are finished on the inside with a strip of linen, the inner red edge is made with loop braiding and the outer red edge is a fingerloop braid of five bows.

Oh my word! It is even more beautiful now!

I am currently starting on making a version of Herjolfsnes 42 as well, so this could not have come at a better time.

Thank you!
Good luck with yout Herjofsnes 42.
It is definitely a pattern I'll be making again. It's very easy to make and very flattering.

Interesting that the slits are made in the middle of a panel. I would have pt them in the seam, I actually plan on doing so with one of my dresses...
Obviously yours is based on an original find, but does it also suit a practical purpose to put the slits right in a piece of cloth?

Suzanne: this dressed is based on one of the herjolfsnes patterns. the original had the slits in the middle of the panel. some of the other herjolfsnes dressed had them in the seam. i was just being geeky and following the original very neatly, but i'm not sure if there was a reason for it! i think it doesn't really matter which method you use...
