Maxi dress season, greeted with black and white patterned knit
Just finished this black and white patterned knit maxi dress, from a fave pattern from last summer (see also here and here) - Simplicity 1801, Cynthia Rowley. This funky modern-ey black and white print seemed like a good transitional fabric for a springy/early summery versatile dress!
(See my Sewing Circle post on how to sew on knits--and since then I've learned how helpful a walking foot is, too; it takes the strain/pull off the fabric as you sew.)
I love the gathers at the shoulders and above the midriff panel in the back as well as the front. Adds to the comfiness and is pretty!
P.S. I can't get my little remote to work with my new camera. Can you tell? #excusetheblur ;)
Anyone else embracing black/white for spring?!
