I finished up this little knit dress earlier this week… It looks so cute on, I wish I had gotten a better picture to show you.
I used this tutorial I found at Prudent Baby. I had a little bit of trouble drawing out the pattern and enlarging it for my daughter. It ended up being too wide, too short , with a crooked bottom. Not sure how I managed that… It is very cute so I might try another one, though I hate making a dress in just a couple of hours and then spending three days on “adjustments”. Very frustrating. I think I will stick to her measurements and just lengthen the dress. The top part will hopefully fit without changes.
I have some new knit fabrics coming from Fabric.com next week. I am looking forward to trying out some new techniques and maybe making something for myself. (If I can get around to it.) I have also been contemplating this pattern on Etsy for my daughter. I think I will go ahead and get it. I have some great coordinating cottons sitting around waiting to be sewn into somthing cute!
I will be linking up at these fabulous Linky Parties listed here!
