This is my first post on craftster, so hoping it works! I made this dress from a charity shop T shirt which i bought because i loved the print. There was just enought fabric left over to make a pair of shorts from the sleeves. Now that my baby is old enough to pull up her skirts (and chew them) I really understand the point of matching pants! I'd always been a bit afraid of jersey, but this seemed to work ok using a medium zig zag stitch. Would love any comments!
Thanks

Lots of love,
