Sew Over It; Heather Dress #1

I love this dress pattern, The Heather Dress from Sew Over It! Of course, that means that I have to make 100 of them. I apologize now to you, my readers. You might have to see many more of these. These dresses are comfortable and soft, they look great in Pont De Roma fabrics and you can find this fabric in every color. Also, the Heather Dress, from Sew Over It, combines two of my favorite things knit fabric and pockets! I love pockets! No wonder I love making bags so much, bags are all about my pocket addiction. I have made many knit dresses but it is nearly impossible to place pockets in a knit dress because the dress sags. The entire dress droops and gravity takes its toll. By the end of the day, your dress is longer just because you put things in your pockets. The Heather Dress is different the pockets can be used and look great. 
Knit fabric dresses are extremely versatile! You can wear them in the spring/ summer with sandals and you can wear them in the fall/ winter with boots and legging and layers.  I have 5 knit dresses and I wear them all year round. I also love 3/4 sleeves so I can wear them at any time of the year. The knit dress is a staple in my wardrobe.
It was my first so I was expecting to have to tweak it a lot but to my surprise, I didn't! I took the sides in a little and shorten the hem but that is all.
I also had extra fabric to make this cute top.
Best Wishes and Tons of Stitches!
