This is a dress with leggings from two different patterns to make a cute outfit I had been dreaming up in my head. I loved the pink and black knit I had bought and had been thinking of how I wanted to use it.I used an organic black knit for the main part of the dress and it is so soft. When I saw the A-line pattern from Lil Blue Boo, I decided that was what I wanted to make. I used a pattern from Whimsy Couture for the leggings. I added a silver star in the middle to break up all the black. The pattern came with one for a doll so I had to make that as well. The only thing I had a problem with was stretching the waist material big enough for the leggings. It isn’t a noticeable mistake since the top is so long.
