A mini dress! I used dixiediy’s pattern to begin in size xl. I slimmed down the sleeves some because they were a little baggier then I liked. I made the lower half more of an a-line because I have fuller hips. Instead of a hemmed sleeve I made a band and sewed them on, like the collar. I opened up the collar some to make it larger.
I did lengthen it a couple inches (I’m 5’8") and I really like it as a tunic. I left the hem un-sewn… I like the look. I used a organic black cotton jersey knit.
Super easy to make! I’m working on a mossy green version of it now,
