New Look 6013

Sorry about the no-posting-for-yonks. We had a house guest for ages, so the sewing room was packed up. Bonus of no sewing - I taught myself to crochet so I can make amigurumi. I am compelled to make this!
I am partway through crocheting a robot right now. If all goes well, I will have a little luchador on the hook next.

Spotlight have had some fab ponte de roma lately, including this grey and black leopard print.
I made the New Look 6013 raglan sleeve dress today. I omitted the zip, and cut the back on the fold, placing the centre back over the edge of the fold to remove the seam allowances due to the no zip thing.
Very quick, everything went together smoothly, and I have yet another grey and black knit frock for winter.

I might be in a rut.
