KCW April 13 - Day 3

This was a late night finish so had to wait for the photo shoot this morning.

Really pleased with how this dress turned out, the cord was a bit of a challenge to get a tidy finish on but this pattern was surprisingly easy to make.  I lined the yoke with light cotton as a double layer of cord too thick and did not double the bottom section for the same reason.
Am thinking this is going to be a winter wardrobe staple - pockets are already proving very popular.
I think I might need to make another version of this dress for winter.
It is ANZAC day here in New Zealand - a public holiday when we commemorate and remember the people who died in the wars - the ANZACs - Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who went into battle at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire (now Turkey) on 25 April 1915.
We have some books to read to Georgie about it and some poppy making and wearing to do ( and hopefully a little sewing on the side)
