Vogue 2091: Knit dress
This was my first knit dress, sewed up early last spring, with only four pattern pieces. This is perfect for my lazy cutting preferences. (Perhaps I can call them "no-hassle" instead of lazy. Doesn't that sound a little more flattering???)
Anyway, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. If I look at it closely, I can find a hundred little things I'm not thrilled with, like the icky topstitching (how do you topstitch well on a slinky, stretchy knit?). But when you stand back and just see the finished garment, it looks just about as good as any comparable dress I could buy off the rack.

Did you top stitch using a twin needle? That makes all the difference with knits!ReplyDelete
Your dress looks lovely, by the way. There's nothing like a red dress!
I have a few little doodads to get for my machine, including the twin needle. Thanks for the reminder... I was going to order a rolled hem foot and an invisible zipper foot from sears.com soon. I'll be sure to add the twin needle thingy, too.ReplyDelete
