The Bella Dress

I've finally finished The Bella Dress Pattern!  It was a lot of work but I am so happy with how it came out!  My hubby was kind enough to trace the patten pages on the computer for me.(Thanks Hubby!!)  It was a team effort.   It is listed in my Etsy shop as of this morning and I've added a link to my side bar. 

I was experimenting with knit fabric last week and wanted to get the hang of it before I tackled the Sienna Dress Pattern and destroyed all my t-shirts. I knew working with knits is a little tricky and I don't have a serger (yet.)  Someday...   So anyway..  I purchased some interlocked knit at Joann's on sale and I used my Bella Dress Pattern.  It came out fabulous and looked soo darn comfy!  I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was working with knit but you definitely need to take more time and be more cautious.  I used my even feed foot (quilting foot) which helped and I sprayed some starch to help the knit behave.
