Copying My Clothes: Knit Dress

Standard

Around Christmas last year I saw this dress at Ross for 10 bucks. It was short, the print didn’t line up and the fabric is just a poly nightmare, but I liked the fit and saw a potential pattern could be made from it. I’ve made four dresses so far and I can’t stop!

Back view. I love the keyhole!

My first copy! I made it with short sleeves and a keyhole opening about 7 months ago. I wear it like crazy!

Drag across the bust… I’ll blame the fabric. On Girl Charlee’s website it was stated that it had a 40% stretch. Sadly, it was about 20% but I’ve made due. I still wear it constantly.

Number 2 3, 3/4 sleeves, no back opening. The fabric makes this dress so awesome. It’s a cotton poly blend with lots of stretch. Actual number 2 is a little see through and I didn’t want pics of it on here haha. I need to line it.

Number 3. PINEAPPLES! Because I was trying to conserve fabric, the skirt and sleeves are a tad shorter than I prefer. BUT PINEAPPLES!!! I’m actually wearing it as I type.

All of the fabric used was purchased from Girl Charlee. I can honestly say is that I love my dresses and I will continue making different variations until forever…I need more prints! Maybe even a solid colored one!

Until next time, happy stitching!

      Beautiful as always! Who needs solid colors when you have such awesome prints? Love the foxes and the pineapples. These look great on you! Keep it up, girlie.
