I sewed a knit... my mama would gasp!

I'm working on a pattern review at the aptly named I made this dress out of a fun geometric black and white knit I got on sale at Sawyer Brook Fabrics. It was one of my favorite recent fabric purchases, and I couldn't be happier with how the dress turned out! It's exactly what I envisioned, and I did it without a knit pattern. :-) I've never sewn with a knit before (at least not successfully), but after how easy this dress was, I'll definitely be making a top soon.

I wanted a simple, sleeveless sheath dress - not too tight, but curve-skimming. Church appropriate, but also ready for a nice dinner out. It has the added bonus of being extremely pack-able (yea for jersey). If you are curious how I used a woven pattern with a knit fabric, check out my review here. I just kind of made it up as I went along...
Now, if only I could take a decent picture with our new mega-camera, we'd be in business.
