Jersey Dress Happiness

I royally Sew Spoiled myself this weekend. Here is one of the many projects I completed. It is a purple jersey knit Washi Dress from Made By Rae's sewing pattern. There are so many beautiful jersey knit fabrics out there that I wanted to give it a try. I bought this fabric from Fabric Bros Etsy shop. It was $4.90 by the yard, I purchased two yards at $14.80 including shipping! Sometimes it is scary to buy knits online because you can not tell the weight or stretch of the fabric. Fabric Bros will send you a sample card of their fabric to choose from. (So Smart!)
Here is a picture of the shirring on the back of the dress and the pockets. 
Got to have pockets!
The best part of this type of fabric is the bounce, drape and flow of the dress. I will never have to iron it!! Just take it out of the dryer and put on! It is so soft and relaxing to wear. Everyone at work looks forward to jean days at school (when teachers can wear jeans) but I look forward to Jersey Dress days. 
Happy Sewing!

Ok, that is the cutest dress ever! I want to redo my entire wardrobe for summer. Thinking of making a dress. Yours is so cute!

Hi Leah - when you made the dress in jersey, did you go down any sizes in the Washi pattern?

Thanks for your comments, I did not go down a size. I kept everything the same except the interfacing. I did not use any interfacing.
