KNITS + WOVEN + SHIRT + DRESS = CUTE!

I have to blogged this. Coz' every "first time' is something that ought to be remembered. For record, this is my first time creating with cotton knits! And the good news to you out there, it is so EASY! So do not afraid to play with it. The basic rule is SEW WITH MEDIUM STITCH LENGTH, and everything will be OK. With this 'hand size' project, I'm not in the position of giving tips on how to handle knits. LOL. There's lots of things i need to learn.


For the pattern pieces, I'm tracing Hadi's 1 year old t'shirt. I'm using the Logantex 95% cotton + 5% lycra knits. 
For the skirt, i used a combination of cotton woven; Modern Meadow, Nicey Jane and Ava Rose. The lining on the neck and arm are also from Nicey Jane. All seams are finished with serged and french seams.

I'm putting this up for sale. Check this out at my FB. It fits 12 to 18 months average sized baby.

Btw, i just found this tips at Oliver+S about working with knits. http://www.oliverands.com/blog/2010/08/tips-for-sewing-with-knit-fabrics.html
