Knot Your Average Shirt and Dress
from 5 out of 4 Patterns Follow

The Knot Your Average Shirt and Dress pattern is intended for knit fabrics and has multiple options to meet your changing needs.
The pattern provides:
– Information for maternity modifications
– Detailed instructions to make the pattern nursing friendly for both the shirt and dress versions.
– Sleeveless, elbow length, long, and extra long sleeve options
-Shirt and dress lengths
-Information on ruching the side seams

Interested in making it into a nursing or non-nursing nightgown? I highly recommend using ITY knit because it is incredibly soft and has a great drape.

Past your nursing days? No problem. There’s an option to cut the pattern as a non-nursing shirt and dress.

The pattern comes in sizes XXS to 3XL.

This is a pattern you can come back to again and again as your body and your life changes. Enjoy! Come and show off your style in our 5 out of 4 Patterns Group on Facebook.
