Pattern: Ringer Tee by Brindille & Twig
Materials: old sweater from my closet
Notes: If you do not like hemming, this is the pattern for you. It uses bands for the sleeves and the bottom. I did not have enough fabric to make a solid back, so I just seamed it down the middle. I’m going to guess that if I had not pointed it out, you wouldn’t have noticed. 🙂 Many store-bought shirts have this as a design feature so just go with it! No one has to know you didn’t do it on purpose. I also took advantage of the ribbing on the original sweater for the waistband and sleeves.

Pattern: Little Wanderer by Thread + Grain
Materials: Knit dress with holes in it from the thrift store, $4.50
Notes: This skirt is a simple half-circle skirt with a high/low hem. It is super easy and even comes with optional pockets. I’ve made a few of these and I don’t always hem it. Knit fabrics can be left raw and won’t fray.
