Description

I made this dress by altering a plain, knit, raglan sleeve top pattern. I shortened the sleeves, changed the neckline and made it knee length. I added elastic to the waist for some shaping and stitched on a crochet applique on the back. I think that makes this otherwise plain dress into something special. Plus it’s so comfy and easy to wear.

I made a little tutorial on my blog on how I attached the applique.

    What a lovely way to spice up a simple dress. Did you sew a casing to the waist for the elastic? Any tips on how to do that?
