Another Go To Dress


After seeing Annee's Go To Dress and the treasure of the FREE pattern for the darling knit dress.  Thank you Andrea!  I knew Grace needed one.  The only problem was that I only had quilter's cotton, and no cute knits!  Then earlier this week I was at JoAnn's and I found all of their knits were 50% off.  I took it as a sign that I needed to buy some knits.  After a quick call to my Sew Sister I determined how much yardage I would need and I was set.

Then last night I stayed up too late to make this cute dress, but I'd say it was worth it.  We had two birthday parties to attend today, and every girl needs a new party dress!!


I loved this pattern, but I would definitely add an inch or two to the length.  I serged the hem and just did a very narrow hem.  I have a feeling I'll be searching Etsy for some more knits for me!

Look at Grace posing! Your knits are great! Her dressed turned out darling. I totally agree that it was about four inches too short (at least for my girls). I keep thinking about making another one.

Gotta slow down on the inspiration - my folder of things "to make" is getting too large to tackle. Love your color/print combination as usual. Joann's is surprising me lately.

That is a great point about the length. I was actually thinking the same thing the other day. My girls wear leggings with theirs all the time but I think I'll put a note on the pattern about the length. Love how this one turned out!
