I won this flamingo-print jersey in a blog giveaway. This week is “Sew Grateful week” in the sewing blogosphere, so in honor of that I made a dress from my gifted fabric. It’s a simple dress with a boat neck, scoop back, in-between-length sleeves, and a quarter-circle skirt. I love it, though I accidentally made it too short. I finished the neckline by fully lining the bodice in self-fabric. The sleeves and skirt were hemmed on my coverstitch.
