Pretty in pink Else (pattern by Schneidernmeistern) #parissewsocial

Hey all, I like to start this brand new year with a little me sewing. I finally made myself an Else!
Else is a 1 pattern - 7 styles dress by Schneidernmeistern designed for knit fabric. Schneidernmeistern was one of our #parissewsocial sponsors, so it has been on my laptop and staring at me for 8 months now. When I picked this pink and glittery sweater knit over at JoyFits (sorry, it's sold out) it finally clicked, Else time!

The pattern is only available in German and you do have to measure yourself in advance and decide on the look you want to achieve because the pattern is only sold with two sizes together. I picked the 38-40 and made the larger of the two because I really wanted the dress to be loose and perfect for lounging. Since I'm quite tall I added and extra 7 cm to the bottom and made the extra long sleeves.

My version has a boatneck and drawstring, but the sky is the limit with this dress pattern, not to mention all the sweaterhacks you can find. I'm sure this won't be the last Else to appear on this blog.

 So, hurray for the new year and a bright pink start!
