I know, I know. There are many that claim to be the perfect knit dress...I've even made a few of them, and those patterns were pretty perfect at that time. But you want to know the best summer knit dress? The most perfect summer knit dress?
My version is made with a rayon lycra knit. Of course, I added some length, and did a FBA, using the same technique that I used with Simplicity 2181, which I detailed here.
While we were at Black Lake last weekend, enjoying a very relaxing, do-nothing get-away, it was obvious that some of the trees across the lake were already turning. Makes me think of the cooler days ahead with just a bit of excitement.
I'm still determined to get a few last warm weather items checked off the queue. But after a bit of closet editing, and internet browsing, research and sketching, I've come up with some great projects for cooler weather so the fall sewing list is already reaching mountainous heights. What will there be?
Some Ponte knit garments, a jacket or two, and a dress for an upcoming wedding....and that's just the beginning!
What are you planning for Fall?
