Simplicity 8178 - Knit for Kaitlyn



Simplicity 8178 made with a Joann fabrics' knit.

Starting 2017 with a dress for Kaitlyn, Simplicity 8178 

The fabric is a Nicole Miller knit from Joann's.  It was on sale and I had a coupon for 25% off purchase, so the fabric was $10 and a bargain.

Back in July, I made myself this dress in a silk twill and Kaitlyn loved it.  I gave the dress to her and she loves this dress, so I decided another one was needed.  In a knit makes it more comfortable.

I added a snap for the silk twill and another one here, helps with modesty.

A look of the back, should of made sure it was on the dress form nicely!

This will be a great dress with tights, boots and a cardigan and then perfect in the summer, too.
