Hi everyone! Welcome back to Sewing with Knits Mondays. I’m so excited to welcome Abby of Sew Much Ado here today! I just want to start out by saying how genuine of a person Abby is, she has been a really great friend to me and definitely someone who I turn to for advice or an opinion. I’m really thankful to know her. And of course she has a beautiful blog filled with tons of inspiration. She has tutorials and patterns to make just about anything you’d ever want to make and she’s not afraid of using knits!
I love that she sews anything from quilts to clothes and everything in between. Plus, just look at her – someone sign her up for a modeling contract! And of course she runs a great linky party every Wednesday called We Did It Wednesdays! So you’ll have to join her this week. Please help me welcome Abby!
Hi, Noodleheads! Anna is one of my very favorite blogging friends, and I’m thrilled that she asked me to be a part of her Sewing With Knits Mondays series. Anna’s pretty much fantastic in every way – sincere, beautiful, creative, and I’m so happy that I can call her my friend! I hope you’ve been following along each Monday on Anna’s blog and also Shannon from Luv In The Mommyhood’s blog – they have both shared some great tips and had some super guests joining in. No reason to be afraid of knits anymore, ladies!
When Anna contacted me, I knew instantly what project I’d be sharing. I’ve been wanting to make a maxi dress tutorial for months now, but just didn’t have the right motivation I needed to get it done. So thanks for the inspiration once again, Anna!
With a simple ruffle detail at the top…
The SoHo Maxi Dress is perfect for even a beginner sewer. No better way to build your confidence with knits than to jump right in! You can make this!
Come visit me at Sew Much Ado and see the full tutorial!
Thanks, Anna for letting me be a part of such a fantastic series!
It’s just beautiful Abby and I can’t wait to try it myself. Thanks for sharing. And don’t forget to check out what Shannon has going on today over at Luvinthemommyhood.

Lol, to be Abby’s age and have a nice waistline again! Thank goodness I have a couple of daughters, some nieces and a granddaughter I can sew this pretty pattern for :D.
Thanks Anna and Abby!
What a lovely dress (and print). 🙂
PS I used your knit binding tutorial and LOVED how it worked. I will definitely be using it again!! http://afewthingsemilymade.blogspot.com/2011/08/baja-dress.html
LOVE that dress! I have got to have one…that dress ALMOST makes me want to learn how to sew-so that I can make one to wear! 🙂
What a very cute dress! Off to visit her blog now.

Beautiful dress. I love Abby’s tip in her tutorial on where to find nicer knit prints.
