I was late to embrace the whole “tribal print” trend, but now I don’t want to let it go. Crazy prints and colors? Sign me up!

IMG_4492This is ponte de roma knit again–a less-stretchy, heavy knit. Since it kind of acts like a woven fabric, I used a pattern for wovens and just left out the center back seam and zipper. The pattern is another variation of the “shift dress” from the Built By Wendy Dresses book (last seen here with a boat neck and here with bell sleeves).

I’m debating adding front patch pockets–I think they’d disappear in the print but then I also think they’d add some detail to make it look more like a dress and less like a long, crazy t-shirt.
