More sewing with knit fabrics

Here’s a couple of dresses that I have made recently:

First off, the Tiramisu Dress from Cake Patterns.  Very easy to make!  I had already made this out of some cheap Ponte Roma, so I was confident in the fit, and decided to use this rather more expensive printed jersey.  It’s got a lovely vintage feel, and is super comfortable to wear.  I was really lucky to get the mustard yellow cardigan to go with it!   And the shoes?  I have had them for years!  It just needs a little attention to the hem, see it’s a bit droopy at the back!

Here’s Tilly’s Coco top made into a dress.  Again it’s printed jersey, an animal print this time.  I have worn this dress several times already – it looks good with boots, and different colour cardigans.  I always thought I didn’t like boat necks, but this one I love!  I must make some tops with this pattern, and I am sure this won’t be the last Coco dress I make.  I love  the string of beads that Burnice made for me and I like to wear them with this dress.
