Los Angeles, Cal...
I saw a sweater dress at Anthro with a cute bow detail at the neck, but I wasn’t a fan of the length or colors. I had this sweater knit fabric at home that I knew would be perfect for making into my own version. I didn’t use a pattern for this; just traced off an old t-shirt I had to figure out the dimensions. The collar is just a really long rectangle attached at the neckline that extends out to tie into a bow. I did end up cutting a slit in the front under the bow and facing it in order to get my head through the top more easily.
The sweater knit was pretty easy to sew, even without a serger. However, it was difficult to keep the grainline straight and I don’t think I quite succeeded.
