I purchased a Gumboots dress for my daughter from the Children and Baby Market last week.
It was made from a stripey grey knit fabric and cost me a whole $2.
I really loved the simple style and thought to myself, I could make that. So I did.
My oldest daughter had brought this fabric back from Poland when she was there last year.
It belonged to my sister-in-laws Grandmother.
It was only a small piece of fabric so I had to cut the sleeves a little shorter than the original.
I am beginning to like sewing with knit fabric more and more.
I love that it doesn't frey so when I edged the neck I just folded the binding in half and left the edges raw.
I had just enough scrap to make a matching headband.
This dress, a long sleeve mini dress, has a bit of a 1960's feel to me.
Cute and comfy.
