Minerva ITY Knit
Because of the print, I decided to go simple. I love hi/lo tops and dresses, so I used one of my TNTs - McCall's 6957 - view B. I love the fit and flare shaping of this pattern!
The only change I made was to add sleeves. I love elbow length sleeves. Many of my TNT patterns are marked with that length.
I did a bit of print matching by making sure the aqua floral was center front and that the sleeves matched. Most of the construction was done on my serger with a 4 thread set-up.
I love using pre-cut fusible stay tape on the shoulders, hems and necklines of my knits. After fusing the tape on, I serged the edges using a 3 thread set-up. Then I simply pressed the hem under by using the stitches as a guideline and top stitched.
Here I styled it with leggings, but it's actually long enough in the front that I can also forego the leggings. I wore it to an outdoor setting, thus the flats, but it can also be styled with heels!
Of course I couldn't resist making a matching mask. To stabilize the knit for the mask, I fused a tricot interfacing to it. The lining/filter pocket is 100% cotton.
This dress is easy to make and fun to wear!
Did I say that I love sewing and wearing ITY knits! 😃
