Ottobre 03-2016 #31 Knit Dress

Isn’t this a cute little Ottbre dress? I made this for the nine year-olds. When I asked them about it, they said the floucy bit at the top needed to go. They are nine going on sixteen, you see. I made it in size 128 but added an inch in the bodice and added three inches to the skirt length. They are long and lean.

She loves it!!! Even with my added inches, you can see it is still probably too short without leggings. It does fit really well though!!

I love these graphic black and white colors with the yellow. The black and white is a double knit (both prints) from the National City Swap Meet and the yellow is a double knit from Fabric Mart. My binder seems to love double knit, so I took full advantage.

I’m doing a much better job of getting consistent results.

I left the hem raw.

Just look at that binding!!

I’m loving my new (new-ish) binder and my newest Ottobre magazine. I’m already planning a matching outfit from a different pattern in the same magazine.
