Sewing the Joni dress by Tilly and the Buttons

I have a new post on the Minerva crafts blog ! Here’s a quick summary but be sure to read the full post here.

As many of you will know already, I love to sew with knit fabrics! and so when Minerva Crafts sent me some of their gorgeous spandex stretch jersey* to review I was delighted and couldn’t wait to get sewing!

With the two recent book releases from Wendy Ward* and Tilly and the Buttons* both dedicated to sewing with knits I had plenty choice of patterns. This time, I chose to make the Joni dress from Tilly and the Buttons’ book – Stretch! Make Yourself Comfortable Sewing with Knit Fabrics*.

I think my Joni dress is my new favourite make (the newest is always my favourite!). I loved making it so much that I think I will have to buy some more of this fabric in a few different colours to make some more!

    Oh wow. I’ve got to day, that dress is amazing!

    I’m impressed to — sewing knitting fabric is a particular challenge for me (I almost never do it, despite being primarily a knitter), because the stretch just causes me such a headache! But that turned out gorgeous!
