More Stretch French Terry!

When I bought the second pile of Stretch French Terry for my daughters' leggings, I bought more black because I wanted to use some to make a simple t-shirt dress for myself.

Two summers ago, I bought a simple t-shirt dress at Zellers just before going on a trip to visit family in Georgia. The dress is a very pinky magenta and I receive compliments every single time I wear it. It's made of a cottony-looking polyester knit with very little stretch, but it is a little hot to wear.

People who know that I sew always think that I made that dress and finally, at the beginning of last summer, I took the hint and traced a pattern from it. With the kids home all day every day, I don't get much sewing and even less fabric shopping done, so the pattern sat patiently in its envelope. Until I found that Stretch French Terry!

Here I am showing you the patch pockets!

I whipped up the dress in next to no time. The sleeves are cut on, so there's really just a front, a back, and two patch pockets. And, because I am short, it only took about a meter, so I still have another meter of this lovely black fabric sitting in my stash! Can I just tell you? This is the most comfortable thing to wear. I feel good in it and I am not restricted by it. I'm thinking I'll be making some more of these!
