Sunki #2 - in progress

Sewing

Jorth and Tyger let their eyes travel along the path of the coin, never letting it out of their sight as it left Jorth's fingers, soared briefly in the air, did a few flips and then plummeted back down to the ground. They both leaned over its landing spot, Jorth doing a few raspy coughs whilst Tyger absentmindedly wiped double-barrel streams of snot onto her sleeve.

"Well", said Jorth, "on the one side we both have ghastly colds, and are stuck inside on a beautifully sunny winter day. Boo!"

Tyger sniffled loudly in agreement.

"But on the other side of this coin, we are snug inside with Pride and Prejudice on - the Ehle/Firth version, naturellement. And a new Sunki dress in progress. AND it's going to be made out of Liberty. Lifestyle Liberty, if you please! So really, on the whole I think things aren't too bad indeed."

"Wave your hands in the air like you just don't care!" said Tyger, letting her snot-covered sleeves do some dancing.

Jorth groaned inwardly, and hoped to high heaven that while she kept on sewing, Tyger might pick up a few deportment tips from the fine ladies and gentlemen of P & P.

  1. I love the look of that pattern. Can you tell me, does it run fairly true to size? I have a 10yo I would love to make it for. Would it be easy to adjust?
    Hope you are feeling better by the way!!!

  2. Why oh why isn't that dress available in proper grownup sizes? It would be perfect for weekends hanging out in a Belgrave cafe in a snuggly knit with tights.

    I think this means I need to figure it out.

  3. Hi Ses,

    It does run true to size - it's cut on the slimmer size, but I don't think you'd have much trouble adjusting it. Tyger is almost 9 and tall for her age - this one I'm making I've adjusted the length and sleeves.

    Good luck!
