Blue Stripe ITY Knit Dress

Summer is HERE!  It's HOT & HUMID!  It's time to sew some summer dresses.

Shopping at Fabric Mart last week and look what beautiful fabric the UPS man brought me......

I used my TNT tank dress pattern, added short sleeves and finished off the neck with a band.  I did not finish the bottom hem of the dress, you can not tell since it's cut on the blue stripe.  Easy enough!

I used a neckband to finish off the neck edge.  It makes it a little more sporty looking.

I also cut the front bodice piece twice.  Making one only waist length.  You really can't see the top layer but fabric was a little thin and it gives a little coverage.  I didn't finish the hem edge of the outer piece.  (Would be a great idea for a nursing top too).

Another summer dress for a great price.

Blue Stripe ITY Knit Dress for $10.80!
I added short short sleeves to the tank dress.  I am ready to wear this dress!

Until next time....................



  1. LOVE it!!!!

    I scored a bunch of this fabric and am happy to see it on a body. The scale is perfect and the color is vibrant.

    So cute.

  2. Pretty! And good idea to double the front.

    1. Thank you, I had a little bit of fabric left and the dress didn't need a ruffle so I tried to be creative......

  3. love-love-love that fabric--great dress too!
