Description

I made a dress with some red in it, to celebrate fall. It’s one of my first knit garments, but it’s a very stable knit and I didn’t encounter a lot of issues while sewing this.
The pattern is Simplicity 7124, a pattern from the sixties. I didn’t change anything, except for a sway back alteration.

    This dress is really pretty, the fabric is fantastic and I like very much the way you styled it!

    Someone is very colour coordinated (I have never seen books grouped in colours b4) and your dress is great too!

      Thanks! ! I don’t have a serger so I rarely sew with knits but this one was really worth it!

      Hi, i don’t pocess a serger either. I use vintage sewing machines and use a zig zag stitch which is great for jersey x
