Cut it out-Knit dress

Good morning guys! I am running late again. This week it’s another McCalls pattern M8253. I absolutely love it. I don't sew with knits terribly often, but I think I will a lot more this year cause they come together pretty quickly for the most part.

I’m obsessed with this fabric that ai got from Etsy, that I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on.

I found that Etsy is a great resource for fabrics especially for African print, and you can typically find Lycra but not Jersey. When I initially ordered this I assumed it would be Lycra and had planned on making a bathing suit. I was pleasantly surprised and knew immediately what to do with it.

Side note. I just “discovered“ the Row in downtown L.A. and this is where I will be taking pictures. So many great locations for pictures. I started slow with the parking lot because I’m still a little shy about taking my own pics in public (I shouldn’t be because everyone is doing it now) but soon I intend to be a pro at it.

Pictures of my shoot below:
