Now, since I have more than enough skirts, I decided to pull out the dress patterns and see what I could come up with.
I ended up with a ton of knit fabric at the end of the summer, so I was really happy to find a dress pattern for knits. I used Butterick Pattern # B5456 for this dress.
The fabric is a fairly lightweight jersey, but the pattern calls for lining the top, so I figured it would work.
My husband, who usually doesn't have an opinion about my fabric choices, loved this fabric. I think he actually got excited when he saw it out on the ironing board.
The second dress I made with Mother's Day in mind. I used Simplicity Pattern # 2886 to make this dress using a vintage bed sheet for the fabric.
It's nice and lightweight, excellent for Arizona summers and can easily be paired with a cardigan. The best part is that it has pockets! Pockets!!
Ah, well, I guess I'm lucky they stood still at all!
I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!!
