During these uncertain times... am I the only one who is sick of that phrase? I actually laugh every time I say it or type it... I'm needing the most comfortable clothing to leave the house wearing. Since I have to wear a mask and it's getting warmer and warmer here, I need pulled back hair and lightweight comfortable clothes. I know we're still basically quarantining, but I still want to be cute. You feel me?!
This dress is True Bias Rio Ringer T-Shirt Dress. And my fabric is an Ivory and Navy Stripe Knit DTY Brushed Poly Spandex from Fabrics by the Yard.
This is a super easy pattern, with only a couple of pieces. If you've ever sewn a t-shirt, you'd have no problems sewing this. Plus, it's drafted really well and Kelli has created great instructions and sewing tips.
This pattern is drafted for someone 5'5", so I added 3" to the length. I my dress to be well above the knees.
I love the way the instructions suggest attaching the binding to the neck and sleeves.
I've never done it that way before and it'll be my new way I do it when sewing a knit neckline.
Since the stripes are pretty large and this is a really simple design, the stripes were easy to match.
