Sew a Knit Dress- November 2018
Make yourself an easy dress with knit fabric. These dresses are the perfect intermediate level project. You choose the pattern- Lodo or Ebony dress patterns. Skills covered in this class include: set-in sleeves, facings, seam finishes, and hemming. This is a great class for any sewist who is interested in sewing with knits.
The Lodo pattern is an elevated take on a basic t-shirt dress. It has a straight fit through the waist and hips and a slightly tapered hem to create a subtle cocoon shape. It has a flattering deep V neck at center front and an extended cap sleeve. Both the neckline and armholes are finished with a woven facing for stability and structure. Materials: 1.5 to 2.5 yards of 60" wide medium weight knit fabric: ponte,or a lightweight scuba. Cooordinating thread. Pattern included.
The Ebony pattern is a swingy knit dress or modern cropped top, with your choice of scoop or jewel neckline, and long or 3/4 sleeves. For the ultimate leggings companion, make an Ebony tunic, with a cascading hem and short raglan sleeves. All necklines are finished with a knit band. Materials: 2 yards of 60” wide light to medium weight drapey knits with at least 30% stretch and coordinating thread.
