Andrea from The Train To Crazy and Go To Patterns graciously invited me to be a part of her pattern tour. I was planning on making myself another Casual Lady but then I remembered that this week is Kids Clothing Week so I made a kids dress instead. I made the Anywhere Dress, (affiliate link),a simple knit tunic with a boat neck and elbow length sleeves. The fit was very good and I didn’t do any fiddling with this pattern. It’s a size 4. It’s easy to sew and makes a great little wardrobe basic. A GO TO dress! And the pattern happens to be on sale! This pattern has a neckline facing. I have never actually faced a knit garment before, I’ve always used bindings, or just turned under and stitched, but the facing gives the neckline some needed structure. However, I would recommend using some elastic or other stabilizer like twill tape at the seam, as the neckline became somewhat stretched out when I sewed the facings to it. The length seems to be just perfect for my four year old. She looks very comfy in this. I have had this fabric for like fifteen years at least. I made The Too Late For Love Dress knit tunic tutorial with it and another top. This is sadly the last of it. It had a good run!
