Dixie DIY T-shirt

I made this T-shirt from Dixie DIY in February and I wore it immediately! I really like it, however next time I will add a couple of cm because it was a bit short for me. 

It is made in a patterned jersey, and I will use it both to dressy and casual events. 
The pattern instructions were simple and Dixie had tips for sewing with knits, both over at her blog and included in the pattern. 
The T-shirt is really simple, and just take a hour or so to make. And the greatest thing of all is that it is a free pdf pattern! Just print out and start sewing!

Thank you for this pattern Dixie!

Simplicity 2254

I made this dress from a 70's pattern from Simplicity that I bought cheap on Ebay. The fabric is some type of non stretch synthetic fabric that I bought last summer.  
 There is a ruffle on the bottom of the dress that makes it about 25 cm longer. Next time I will do it without the ruffle, because now it ends a decimeter below the knee. And because I'm short, it isn't as nice as you may think. 
 The dress is hold up by straps that you tie. Although there is elastic thread it can not be held up only by the elastic. 
Normally I am a 38, but this dress in 36 do actually fit very well. I saw that the dress without the ruffle would be a great dress! I'll do that next time. 

Better late than never...

I hope you all had a great Easter! So did I...
