SWAP 2013: First item completed

Here's the first new item for the SWAP, a knit dress made from a merge of New Look 6071 and New Look 6735 with an added loose turtleneck collar. This will work well under the boiled wool jacket when I make it up.
Here's the sketch from my original plan :-
And here's the finished article :-
The dress is just below knee length and has full length sleeves. I plan to wear it with a jacket and knee high boots.
On to the next item after lunch and a supermarket run.

Ooh, that's very smart. I think you'll get lots of wear from that one. So classic but the collar gives it a lovely modern feel.
