White-or-black-coffee dress + mum's knitted coat

White-or-black-coffee dress

I had this unusual patterned fabric for several years and I just couldn't decide what to do with it. I've finally done this dress from Burda magazine - 11/ 2012; modell 101, size 38. The material is of course jersey. I changed the bottom hem & sleeve cuffs. I used a dark brown jersey left from other project. Basically I simplified the dress for several reasons: because I didn't have enough material, because the original thing was a bit more complicated and because it turned out just fine in the end. The pattern is not difficult. Nowadays I always choose patterns that are quickly done because I don't have the time or energy. After I'm done with my job and my baby girl I'm sometimes too tired to do anything. I associate this pattern with white coffee, black coffee and cappuccino. I have no idea why. Probably because of the brown colours and the winding pattern.

Mum's knitted coat

That's the other thing that I really wanted to show off. It's not my work. It was made (knitted) by my mum when I was in high school - a long time ago. It was a full-length coat but I didn't like that and I had never worn it. But then I suggested to my mum if she could shorten it to a knee-length. Now it's absolutely wonderful. It's very warm because it's woollen and this year's winter is just perfect for it. It's unusually warm without any snow in Slovenia which suits me fine. I'm not a big fan of winter.
