The Janie Dress, released back in November, has become one of my top sellers very quickly! I believe it is because there are so many options and it is a very fast sew. Ainsley absolutely LOVES knit dresses and I love that it can either be dressed up or down very easily. Girl Charlee Fabrics is one of my go-to fabric shops for unique knits, and I am always so happy to collaborate with them. They sent me 2 yards of this beautiful yellow poppy knit border print that I knew would make for a perfect spring Janie Dress. (One note: I did have to line the bodice of this with plain white knit, as it would have been too see-through, otherwise. I didn’t line the skirt because the gathering allowed enough opacity.)
This Janie has the ballet back (scoop back), peter pan collar (with regular cotton woven), short sleeves and then I modified the circle skirt to be a basic gathered rectangular skirt, so that I wouldn’t lose the awesome border print. I will have a tutorial up for that later this week, but I promise it is a very simple modification for those of you that have border prints like this.
Ainsley absolutely loves it and I think it will be great with a denim jacket, until it is warmer out.
Thank you Girl Charlee for sending me this beautiful fabric. I will have another post up later this week with the most gorgeous rib knit Janie!
