a dollop of sunshine… or something of that sort.  Sewing with knits is one of my favorite things because its so easy and the result is so light and comfortable.   I found this lovely knit amongst a massive pile in a fabric store/basement in San Francisco.  It was about $2 a yard and well worth the hunt.  I think its a rayon blend… its really drapey and soft.  I plotted the back by making fabric strips and tying them in a series of knots.  The best advice I can give anyone sewing with knits is MAKE A FACING FOR EVERYTHING!  Its a really easy way to get nice clean lines.  Here is a link to a site with some good tips for sewing with knits.  Enjoy!
