Sew Over It; Heather Dress #2

See I told you, after sewing Heather Dress #1, here is Heather Dress #2. This time I used a sweater knit fabric. It is so warm, comfortable and soft. Great for the wintery weather we are having in the south this year. Also, the pockets seem to perform better in this fabric choice.

I again had a little extra fabric. So I made a knit pencil skirt. I just used a pencil skirt that I had in my closet as a pattern. Yay, I love getting a little extra fabric for one more design. This stretches my fabric wardrobe budget.

Piecing everything together can be fun and give you the boost you need to start sewing!

I love how easily this dress comes together. It looks professional but at the same time feels great. I can teach music and move around and look great all at the same time.

Thank you so much! I hope you are doing well! I found this fabric at JoAnn's! So many possibilities with this design.

I have been looking at the heather dress pattern for a while, and while some of them look good, I was hesitating because a lot of them seem too clingy and the pocket appears too high. Yours however, is perfect, and the best one I have seen. !
I don't know if I can do as good a job, but at least it shows be what it looks like when it looks RIGHT! Thanks so much for the inspiration.
