Another easy knit project is finished thanks to the patterns in the book "Sew What You Love", the same book the "Everyday Tunic" shirt came from. The "Go-To Dress" is a basic knit dress accented with either a knit belt that cinches the waist or a shirred waistband you make with elastic thread. I chose to make a knit belt, the easiest option, and I thought it was another good opportunity to use the color blocking trend.
I am so impressed with the first two patterns I've made from this book, and I am going to sew a few other projects from the book (not in the clothing category) to see if the other things are as fun to sew as these projects were. These projects took such a small amount of time and turned out very well which has really re-energized my love of sewing. With all the sewing I've been doing this summer for the blog, sewing has sometimes felt more like a job than a hobby I love until this book came along. For pattern 14, I am going to make the "Apple Pie Ottoman" found in this book, and I am very excited to sew something other than clothes!
