    quick easy sew, fitted bodycon style

    i've made the dress version twice and is a lovely fitted dress, it looks small when sewn up but needs to be so the shoulders stay on. i attached the neckband back to front the first time as i didn't realise the back was lower then the front! make sure you have a good stretch fabric with recovery. i did one in a sports knit and that works too.

    This sew was easier than it looked!

    I purchased the Nettie bodysuit/dress pattern and sewed up the bodysuit in a merino knit. I haven't sewed a lot of knit patterns, but this went very smoothly. I was pleased with the shape and the fit. I have worn it sitting around the house as well as out rollerskating with my teen and I found it is comfy in either circumstance. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a comfy, feminine shirt that stays tucked in.

    This was the first of my CC purchases, and I have only made the body suit so far. There are endless variations, and since the first went together so nicely, there will definitely be more. I loved the suggestion and the instructions for the optional shelf bra. This option creates just enough coverage to camoflage a seamed bra under a knit garment. It's brilliant!
