Nettie vol.2


So summer is officially here! Sky-high temperatures are here for good and any garment that can give proper coverage with minimum amount of fabric touching the skin is a must. Enter my second Nettie. I loved my first version, but wanted to make a dress more appropriate for summer as well. This time I cut a size 8 for the bust and graded to a size 10 for the waist and hips. This definitely fixed the dropping shoulder problem from my first version. I made the scoop front, medium back version, omitted the sleeves and just hemmed the armholes by turning 1 cm under. For this version I used  the leftover jersey fabric from my Hemlock tee.

I already raved and showed my love for this pattern and Heather's creativity. Nettie is definitely an addiction! Once you make one, you can't stop making them. I see many more versions coming.

So how about you? Have you make a Nettie?
