As previously discussed, this dress is part of "The Cardigan Series" actually the last one in the series. It was made to accompany these pieces:
Garments that were made about five years ago when I first started my journey with Burda 8869. This grouping is comprised of a cardigan and sweater from the Burda pattern and a pair of lined pants from my TNT pattern. I've always wanted to add a dress and skirt to this pairing...giving me more flexibility to wear the pieces...and updating them for my current workplace.
Here is the dress and cardigan (on the hanger):

that chain is from my mom who wore it in high school!
Fabric: wool/poly blend purchased from JoMars
Notions: 1 yard of navy blue piping, 2 yards of navy blue rayon hem tape, 2 yards of black bias binding, 22" invisible zipper
Nothing new and different about it's construction...it's just another version of my TNT dress pattern in a plaid sheath dress with a little bit of navy blue piping at the neckline. The dress is perfect for work and eliminates 2 yards of fabric from the collection...even though there is still a yard and 1/2 waiting for the skirt to be made from it.
The grouping as it is now:
Next up are two pieces from the SWAP Collection...and pics of me wearing these pieces before I go back to work...I promise!
