A knit dress made with this pseudo-chinese design from Girl Charlee (LOVE that store, best knits at the best prices!) I used Dixie DIY’s Ballet dress for the bodice, with a few modifications, (tightened it, etc) and used Vivet Veritas’ half circle skirt pattern for the skirt. Somehow an asymmetric hem happened, and I’m going to pretend that was intentional….
Very easy to throw together, even without a serger, and perfect for summer!
