XOXO Flirty Dress

I'm having such fun designing fabric and having it printed. This is the first design I've created on my new iPad!! My sweet hubby decided I needed cheering up after getting my braces a few weeks ago, and I've been having such fun playing around on it. This new design can be found on if you search for Wordsworth.

These are the different colorways available. I printed the design on the Modern Jersey fabric (which is only 52" wide), a super-stretchy polyester knit. I added 1/2" interfacing anywhere I needed to topstitch with my regular machine or the coverstitch machine to prevent the fabric channeling between the two lines of stitching. I think I prefer their Organic Cotton Knit but this fabric performs well in this pattern. 

The pattern is Vogue 9109 which is a tunic pattern I made longer for a dress. I was able to make this dress from just one yard of fabric in size 12. I used 2" strips of fabric, folded in half for the binding at the neck and armhole edges. 

Because this pattern doesn't have a back seam for shaping, the resulting dress is a little boxy in back but it's really comfortable and still form-fitting enough to be flattering. 

I'm thinking I can wear this in the fall as a transition piece with black tights and a cardi, but for now it's perfect for breezy summer days.
