Me-Made-May 2106 Post #9

Hello again! It’s Post #9 for the #MMM16 challenge…coming down the home stretch! In my previous post, I featured a dress I had made for our daughter’s college commencement weekend recently. The weather was chilly with occasional rain showers…not what we were hoping. But we were determined not to let the threatening skies dampen our fun and plans. Up in the Ithaca, NY area there are two large lakes, Cayuga and Seneca. Both lakes are surrounded by many of NY State’s fine wineries. My daughter snapped this pic outside one of the tasting rooms, just before it started raining again!.

It’s that cute little black with white polka dot skirt that I want to tell you about. The moderate stretch knit fabric was a leftover piece from a large cut from Joann Fabrics.  The commercial pattern is Simplicity 1163. It was almost too easy to make! It has only two side seams and a wide elastic casing waistband. LOOOOVE it! And I do plan on making more of these in different weight knits for all year round! Last summer, I made a pullover shift dress using the same fabric for a trip out to LA. Can’t get enough of a good thing, right! The pattern is Tily and The Buttons, Coco!.
