A Red Flame Amidst the Fall Leaves

     My contribution for the week of the fall challenge is this stretch knit sweater dress. I absolutely LOVE this!!!

I had been eying up this fabric for awhile.  I only bought it once I purchased McCalls #6433 and then saw it made both in Sew Weekly (for the Plaid Challenge) and in my local JoAnn's ad.  There…

Key-Hole Back Refashioned Knit Dress
