I’ve been taking full advantage of my want to sew. My daughter’s are loving it as well because that means they can request what they would like to have made. I love it that they love and appreciate my handmade garments. I feel so good inside when they wear the thing’s I make for them. So next on the list was this simple A-line dress. Lately, my youngest has become obsessed with houndstooth. Which thrills me…..because I am too!!! So I found a great teal and black jersey knit houndstooth on DenverFabrics.com. The week that I was online fabric shopping they were having a great sale on knits. So I ordered quite a bit of fabric. So I will have more projects coming up soon. Once my order arrived I got to work right away.
I followed this very easy tutorial here.
The dress requires 1 yard of a stretch fabric.
I made the following adjustments.
• I added inset sleeve’s instead of the dolman sleeve (click here for a how to tutorial.)
• 3/4″ loose sleeve’s (my daughter’s preference.)
• Added length to hemline.
Happy Sewing & Until Next Time,
