Red Knit Dress

It is June and teachers in Ontario are typically very busy in June. Report cards and getting ready for the  next school year, all the year-end things to file and send in, and for me, a change of schools. All this and the students are off-the-wall because they are excited for the hot weather and summer break. So, I've only completed a bit of sewing in the past few weeks...Here is a red, knit dress.

When I was learning to sew, I was taught never to change a pattern. NEVER. So one of  the great things about sewing blogs has been that all of the blogs I read ignore that advice (or maybe never got it in the first place!). Here is the back of the red knit dress I made. Oh, and since it is a knit, I sized down 2 sizes. 

The dress was loosely based on this pattern. And I mean  loosely...first of all, I made  it from a knit and second, I changed the top of the dress completely. (Here is another version of this dress that I made recently). I think changing patterns will be something I can get into for awhile...I love the freedom of it all!


  1. Love the dress! It is fun to change up a pattern and go with something different.


  2. I love it! Why did you decide to work with knits? Really brave to use a woven pattern for knits...

  3. Love this dress. I'm really craving red at the moment and this is just gorgeous!

  4. Lovely dress! I love that it's a knit!

  5. Love this dress. Red is always a hit...
