Kimono Tee again, this time with a full skirt. This is now the easiest dress I make. The skirt is just the width of the fabric gathered on my serger, which is a new trick I learned here. Amazing! This is why I really want to become a better blogger -- because I love reading other people`s blogs. Four Square Walls is one of my favorites. Another blogger I enjoy, Jolies Bobines, just used a similar fabric for a lovely dress. Wow, she`s so talented! Anyhow, back to me...
Maggie Wrap by Robyn Chachula. My Ravelry page is here. It`s made with the DK weight baby alpaca I import from Peru whenever I can get my friend to bring it back for me. I love this yarn! The wooden buttons are from Etsy.

And here's the strip tease....
Ta da! Here's the dress I made. It's blue. It's a cotton-spandex jersey version of the Maria of Denmark Kimono Tee, cut down a little slimmer and attached at the waist to a simple straight skirt.
This is a great, easy dress to have. I've been wearing it every laundry cycle. More, please!
