Description

This elegant knit dress features an interesting and deceptively uncomplicated wrap detail as well as a simple set-in sleeve, a very easy-to-sew V neck, and a front-slit skirt. The dress comes together quickly and is extremely comfortable to wear. View A includes a short cap sleeve and front ties while View B features long sleeves and longer ties that wrap around the body before tying in front. This dress can be sewn from ponte for an office-worthy or cocktail dress or from jersey or French terry for a more casual everyday dress.

Suggested Fabrics

This pattern works best with light- to medium-weight knit fabrics like jersey, ponte di Roma, interlock, and French terry.

Notions

Coordinating thread, double needle (optional).
