Snakey McCrystal

At the same time I bought the red Ponti di Roma, I picked up some snakeskin print knit to make the so called 'perfect knit dress', McCall's 5974.

Is it perfect? Well, it is pretty comfortable and I do like the sashy-wrap business.
I altered the sleeves a bit by morphing the cut on sleeves from Butterick 5101 so that I didn't have to do set in sleeves - I'm pleased with how they turned out.


I also strung some crystal beads to make a three strand necklace.

Mmm, looks lovely on you.
Love the sleeves too, why set in when you can cut-on I say!

I bought this pattern about a month ago. It looks good. I have a few other projects right now so I may wait until the new year and make spring dress. Thank you for sharing.

You'll charm someone in that snake print! Great fit.
