Want to make something that the little girls in your life will love? With rows and rows of soft, knit ruffles and a fuller fit throughout the bodice and skirt so that she can twirl around, dance, and slide down the slide at school, all the while feeling like she is in the coziest of nightgowns, this dress is sure to make her happy.
Before now, I never knew where to find striped knit fabric in earth tones such as brown and ivory or blue and brown like shown in the dress samples in the listing. You won't believe how affordable these knits are! They start around $6.50 a yard!
In the two never before linked knit fabric shops, you can find boutique striped knits as mentioned, past lines of knits from Baby Lulu and Baby Nay, and much more of these really soft knits! You will want to make one of these dresses for every little girl you know.
Afraid to sew with knits because you gave it a try in the past and it just didn't go as well as you had hoped?
Inside the pattern you will find the following which is sure to make sewing with knits much easier:
*what types of needle to use with knits in your sewing machine
*all about the right thread for your serger (although a serger is not required when sewing with knits because knits do not fray)
*how to keep the knit from curling up on the ends
This dress is much faster and easier to make than you think too! I whip these up in just a few hours and my girls are lined up at the door of my craft room, ready to dance in their new dress when I finish!
