I’ve had this lovely striped sweater knit fabric in my stash for the longest time and figured that my pattern hacking experiment was a good enough time to try it out.
To make this little dress I added a pointy collar and length. It is super comfortable and I’m thrilled the stripes matched up on all the seams!
Sweater knit is a little delicate to work with, though. I love how soft and comfy this dress/tunic is but it was a minor pain to stitch up.
To make the collar, I copied the slope of the original pattern at the neck and then made the pointy shape. To be honest, I was winging it. Thankfully it worked but it definitely could have been a wastebasket situation. That comes with the territory sometimes. All in all, I like it and it will be worn! Yay!
And…here are all the plantain tee variations! Not a bad addition to my handmade closet!
Finally, before you start to think that it’s all hair-touching, dreamy, smily photos here is what it looks like when I drop my wireless camera remote on my foot.
