Modal Knit summer dress

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I can get it out of one yard. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have shard as much as I can. Just use a tee that you like and either cut it up or make a muslin pattern by laying the shirt on muslin and cutting it out leaving plenty for seams. Cut wider as you can always take it in but you can never add. Leave plenty for a hem, You never know how much it rides up. I would have cut this longer but I did not have enough fabric as I had one yard. This is a modal 2-way knit. Very cool fabric and by cool I mean it wears well in the summer. I live in AZ so I need cool clothes and get tired of wearing linen due to the wrinkles. Still love linen though.

What you will need

  • 1 yard modal knit 60" wide. Pattern of your choice. I fashioned this pattern out of a racer back top with a draped front and extended it. Make it any length you want. Usual sewing tools.
