New Dresses Are So Much Fun

I love to wear dresses.  I love wearing custom-made dresses even more than wearing ready-to-wear dresses. I suppose I like the idea of wearing something that was made especially for me. 

Last week, I finished the hem on my first knit dress. For years, I had avoided making garments out of knit fabrics. I was afraid of the stretchiness of knits. I know this may seem odd because I work with "difficult" fabrics regularly. After all, my favorite fabrics are chiffon, silk, satin, and velvet. This year, I decided to try something new.  I am so happy I decided to try a knit and not just a solid color knit; I dove head first and made a dress from a print fabric.

I love it! The dress is fun and casual. It is perfect for Spring and Summer.
