The Free Form Dress

I don't do a ton of work with knit fabrics, but after this dress, I just may have to start. I used only 2 yards to create this adorable dress. I traced around a t-shirt just to get the sleeves and shape right. (Shape doesn't matter too much since it's knit!). Then I just lengthened it (I am not even 5 feet tall so i didn't have to make it too long, so you may need 3 yards!) 

After that you can just kind of play around with the sleeves and neck line. I also made the back a bit longer. I trimmed the neckline in bias tape to pop the blue! I love the easy, flowy, effect it gives off. 

Do you have any tips for working with knits?
