|The original shirt|
This dress was my second go at using my coverstitch machine, and thank goodness it behaved better than my first effort - I have a perfect hem with no skipped stitches! Yay!

This has become one of my go-to dresses for late summer (Ok, so technically summer is over, but you try telling the sun that). It's so comfortable, and I'm rather keen to make more T-shirt style or knit dresses now. I do have one in the planning stage, but by the time I get around to it I'm sure the sun will have realised that summer has gone!
As I was rummaging through my stash afterwards, I realised that this fabric wasn't even the one that I had intended to make the shirt from at all. I have another piece of blue fabric that I was going to use. I have so much blue fabric in my stash! It's a good thing that I picked the wrong one up though, or this dress wouldn't have come into being! Now I just need to work out what to use the piece of blue stretch fabric for.
