|Penny by ModKid|
This cute and comfy dress is a result of wonderful finds at the International Quilt Festival in Houston this year. I bought the heathered plum double knit fabric at Vogue Fabrics and the ruffle knit fabric at Sew It Up. They went together beautifully!!!
I used the simple dress, Penny, from ModKids to make this trendy outfit. The sleeves and hemline were cut short and I added three rows of ruffle fabric to make a ruffled "statement." Sewing three rows of ruffle knit together was a little insane. I found it easiest to zig-zag the seams together on the knit.

For those of you who would like to copy, I would cut the ruffle of the sleeves to 2 rows of green and blue, but keep 3 rows of purple. I would also add a fourth row of purple on the hemline. It seams the bottom row tends to turn under and the added row would be great for the visual look of the outfit.
Happy New Year!!!
