Ebony = Love

Some patterns are just too good to resist. Especially when your friends make such awesome versions on release day 🙂

Colours are slightly washed out even after correcting.

The Ebony t-shirt & knit dress is exactly what I was trying to create when I made my black Nettie swing dress but Heather Lou made it even better. The hi-low hem is on point and the sleeve variations give it everything you want and more.

I made a straight size 14 after Gillian advised to size down when in between sizes. Next time I’ll shorten it beforehand because this needed a 2″ hem to be sassy. I also have a 2″ sleeve hem. #yesimshort

Other than that, perfect fit 🙂

These are the real life colours. Better lighting but the backdrop was making this feel like a camo outfit.

I’m not going into the whole “flattering vs non-flattering for my shape” discussion. Let’s just say that I don’t care and that I love love love this dress! I feel sexy and sassy and that’s what counts #somuchcomfort #somuchtwirling
