This is what happens when you try to rely on remnants, fail, and then run out and buy the wrong fabric.
I got my inspiration from this knit sweater dress at Ravelry.
I haven’t started knitting yet. So, I used some heather gray knit fabric that found in the remnant bin. I used the Simplicity 2245 pattern, but reduced the size of the body substantially.
I ran out of fabric, ran to the store and ended up with rib knit fabric. I made lemonade out of my screw-up!
