March Garment of the Month Challenge Determined

I've decided to make March's Garment of the Month Challenge a little easier than my February one (which still isn't completed).  Using Simplicity 2369 - I will make a knee length, mock-wrap dress with the longer sleeves.  I have some great knit in my stash already - it's black with white circles on it that I picked up at Mill End Fabrics in Reno last summer.


I will change the style from a straight dress to one with more of a flare at the bottom though - I tend to like that style a little better. So it's off to pattern altering I go!

Happy Sewing!

    1. Thanks Barbara. If I remember correctly, I paid $3.00 per yard for that fabric so it will be an inexpensive dress as well!

    1. Good luck with the pj's. I thought after my February disaster that I would keep it simple this month as well.
