So on a Friday night around 8, I went to Joann’s and fell in love with this red and blue striped jersey knit fabric. With never making much for myself, I was a little nervous to tackle my first dress with such a bold print, I definitely didn’t want to look like I was part of the circus ;) But I did it and finished up at 3 AM, hence, my 3 AM dress! It’s far from perfect, and I couldn’t seem to get an even gathering (with a regular foot) where the bodice and skirt meet…so take it easy on me :) I loooove the way jersey knit feels….but man, it’s not the easiest to sew. I used Dixie’s pattern, but didn’t follow any directions…that might have helped…ha. Please ignore the wrinkles in the back!! ;)
