This was made using the Hot Patterns kimono dress pattern, and while it’s not perfect, I’m pretty freaking pleased with myself as this was the first time I’ve ever worked with non-stable knits. The pattern definitely has its flaws and communication errors, but I love the way this dress turned out fitting and I definitely think I’ll make another. In any case, I’m relieved that stretchy knits weren’t as scary to work with as I had feared.
