Comfy & Casual

Wish we had a beach nearby that we could visit in this cute summer dress!  Instead we are trying not to go crazy while we play inside and wait for the snow to melt.

 I have discovered lots of cute clothing tutorials lately and when I spotted this pink knit at JoAnne's I knew just what I'd make:  The Warhol Dress by Dana at Made.  She offers a FREE pattern and a great tutorial.  This was my first time sewing with knits and it was sort of challenging!  At first, I sewed the yoke on with cream colored thread and it did NOT look good.  My crooked stitches screamed homemade, so the perfectionist in me pulled out the good 'ol seam ripper.  Sigh.  And I redid it, this time handstitching the yoke with a hidden stitch.  It looks much more professional and although it was more time consuming I am really happy with the result. Thanks for the great tutorial Dana!
