Red Knit Dress

As simple as this dress looks it was actually a couple of "firsts" for me and I was a little hesitant. It was my first time working with knit fabric and first time sewing sleeves. As simple as it looks... it was!! I didn't have any problem sewing the knit fabric and the sleeves were a breeze!

I love this dress because it's so versatile for the fall and winter. It's easy to belt it, layer it, pair it with tights and boots or dress it up with heels. I like it so much I plan to make it again in black with full length sleeves as well.

did you use a pattern? where do you buy your knit fabric?

Hey Mommy, Esq. Yes, I did use a pattern and I just bought my fabric from Joann fabrics. Nothing too special, but it works!

It looks great! Which pattern did you use? I'm dying to make myself a knit dress, but not sure where to start. Not sure where to start with pattern selection or fabric selection. I want a nice weight knit, so I'll actually enjoy wearing what I make.
