I've been blessed to have my son and daughter in law visiting me this week.  My daughter-in-law, being quite the girly girl and fashionably sensitive, was wearing a very adorable designer t-shirt she bought.  After looking at the simplicity of the design I decided to make her a dress using this shirt as the pattern.  This dress turned out incredibly cute and surprisingly easy to make.  I have never really enjoyed sewing with knits but I must say that after making this dress I have a new appreciation for making clothes with these kinds of fabrics.  It makes sewing a dream!  

Step 1: Supplies

1 1/2 Yards knit fabric
Favorite t-shirt for the pattern
Matching thread
Yard stick
Sewing machine
Sewing pins
love it
