It is another Shift Dress from the book Skirts & Dresses for First Time Sewers by Christine Haynes, made this time in a lightweight jersey knit fabric. Although this sewing pattern is designed for woven fabrics, I just could not resist making this dress in a knit fabric – I confess that I am a knits addict and proud of it!
I love the drape and feel of wearing a good jersey knit. It is so easy and comfortable to wear which is good for me as I am an active person and need to move around.
My favourite design feature of this dress is the gathered cuff, it finishes off the dress beautifully.

I will be taking this Shift Dress on holiday with me and I look forward to wearing it.
Do you prefer this Shift Dress in the woven or knit fabric? I would love to hear from you!
