I ended 2015 with another self drafted tutu for my daughter.
I underlined the skirt with faux-leather knit and added several layers of mesh to make it "big"
Fast forward a couple of days... I started my new year with Simplicity 1276. I used stash Scuba Knit and Ponte Knit in the construction of this dress.
I didn't like the shiny side of the Scuba knit against the dull Ponte so I cut it inside out and I love it!
The pattern called for a lining, but my fabric is so thick that I didn't see a need for it. Since I didn't attach a lining, I turned the neckline seam down in and finished it with a blind stitch.
I continued the color-blocking effect with a blue zipper.
The finished dress without the pins
Happy New Sewing Year!
