I found this white jersey with tiny black polka dots at a French thrift store and decided to make a dress with it. I dug through my stock of vintage patterns and chose the unlikely Butterick pattern 3160 which is actually a pattern for a night-time robe with big sleeves with buttons all the way down the front to the hem. I stopped the buttons at the waist and got this comfy thing. The jersey was difficult to work with, hard to hem, it’s a little crunkled as the photos show.
