Several months ago, I was perusing the jersey knit section in one of the local fabric stores when I found a wonderfully vibrant print on super clearance. I had no idea what I would do with it. Maybe a skirt? I bought a yard or so, brought it home, tucked it away somewhere and completely forgot about it. A few weeks ago, the fabric resurfaced as I was tackling cleaning out a closet. And I still didn’t know what to do with it.
Then inspiration struck. Earlier this year, I found an incredibly easy pattern for a maxi dress using jersey. I mean, easy. Why not do a little tunic dress with the same pattern?

And in less than ten minutes! Grant it, I didn’t hem anything, and I think I’ll go back and do that, especially with the sleeves and neck line for a more polished look. I have more so ugly-it’s-kinda-cute jersey that I’ve had for years, and I might use the basic idea to make a tunic top with it. We’ll see. In the meantime, I’m happy with the ten minute dress I made, and it’ will be packed for vacation (I can’t wait!)
