I had a yard of Grey/Black/Yellow/White ITY Knit and 1yard 24" of a Grey (not scuba knit), maybe a techno knit. I had to shorten the dress skirt length to knee length to make the pattern fit the fabric.

I did add the waist ties and the waist elastic this time. This dress looks very much like summer to me.

Or even Fall with a black cardigan and some boots.

I topstitched the bodice front piece. Very tailored looking.

Of course, I had to make a modesty panel. I had just enough skirt fabric left over to sew one up. I am going to have to look for some jewelry with bold yellow flowers.

I am currently working on altering a bridesmaid dress. I had to let out the hips a little, take up at the shoulders and add a modesty panel. I had to look for black satin while I was out this week.
Until next time................
