I seem to come back to this pattern, the twist-front top from Simplicity 4076, often.  I'm sure you'd find multiple versions of it if you poked through my Craftster post history- it's quick, it's easy, and the twisted front is a cute detail.


This time, though, I extended it out to make a quick little dress. It was pretty simple to do:



And it took me less than an hour from fabric to cute new dress!


I blogged it here.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.
