A winter Foras dress

Another Christmas dress, this time for our middle one, and another Foras dress*. The previous Foras dress I made was a summer version with short sleeves and a circle skirt. This time I made a winter version of the Foras dress by Sofilantjes with long sleeves and those beautiful long cuffs, I love those.


I made the dress with the same fabric that I used for the Christmas dress for our eldest, which is a very thick sweater type of fabric with borg (or whatever you call the soft hairy fabric on the inside). I used the gathered skirt and it took me quite some time to properly gather the fabric. The Foras dress is thus a perfect dress for summer and winter due to the more relaxed fit.


Fabric: the alpenfleece fabric comes from de Stoffenstraat. The ribbing comes from Textielstad
