    I started on my version yesterday. I did a reverse appliqué on the top with some of the skirt fabric, so it’s taking more than 15 minutes. I’m also doing mine with an empire waist. Love the idea of just cutting a slit! I’ll send pics when I’m done.

    Thanks for posting!!

  6. Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is a very well written article.
    I’ll make sure to bookmark it and come back to read more

    Fabulous as always! I love the photos!

  8. Looks great Beth! I really like how you pointed out the no-hem bottom. With knit fabric, I really don’t think people notice it at all. Saves time and frustration for those less comfortable with knits. Another great project!

  9. Cute dress!! I’ve got a Craft Gossip post scheduled for tomorrow that links to your tutorial:
