Let's start with the Cocoon Dress hack.
I raised the neckline added a turtleneck and lengthened the sleeves on this hack for Wilma. I also lengthened the front piece and the shape is a little less cocoony on this one compared to the original pattern.
If you make this type of neckline adjustment make sure that your fabric has (enough) stretch - or else it's going to involve a little violence to pull over the head....says the women who didn't check the stretchability prior to sewing. No child was harmed during the process. Okay, a nose might have been slightly bruised. Well, you live and learn.
The beautiful black not so stretchy jersey with silver shine is from Stofdepotet.
The sweet kimono is the recently released Fishtail Kimono designed by Chalk And Notch. I sewed this size 10 up in a very stretchy dotted rayon jersey (ha, perhaps I should have switched fabric for these makes). I had a little trouble getting the front band to fit the cardi. I had to cut a little length off the cardi as the band was to short. I haven't double checked but it might have been me tracing the wrong band size. No matter what the outcome is so so so sweet. I adore the tiny gathers and lowered hemline on the back. I will definetely make Wilma a woven version as well.
Have a nice christmas/jul everyone.
