This is the second in the series of pullover tunic/dress/shirts from that New Look Pattern A6225.
A rayon/linen blend from Joann's, which I washed first to eliminate shrinking surprises, and it came out barely wrinkled.
I added side seam patch pockets and a neckline facing, much as I dislike them, it does help keep the shape better. I need lightweight summer dresses and this pattern fits the bill. But I kinda like the funky addition of leggings underneath. I don't have the nicest shaped knees, so leggings are a public service.
I had a couple of big bags of giveaway stuff, plus a totebag full of shoes I never wear and took off for Goodwill. The totebag was something a guild gave me years ago when I taught there, and before I handed it over, I thought I might check the outside pocket, just in case there was something in there I had forgotten. To my surprise, I found a small blue drawstring bag and in that bag was a gold necklace and locket engraved with the letter G. Hmmm? Wasn't mine. But the price tag was still on the necklace, so even without my glasses, I knew it was real gold.
With the letter G, I figured it would make a nice gift for my niece Glory. So I called my sister to tell her of the find and as I mentioned the blue drawstring bag she blurted, "You found it!!!" Wha?
Apparently she had used the tote to bring stuff to my house at Christmas, and had slid that little bag in there to wrap later and then forgot about it. She searched high and low and never found the necklace. It was just by chance that I decided to look in that tote's pocket. Happy ending.
