A while ago I posted that I am revisiting some of Stylearc's simple shapes and I am overdue in my posts about them.
So here we go.
Right now I am in Berkeley visiting my son, daughter-in-law and youngest grandchild after a very, very long time. I will be here for another two weeks.
This visit is overdue thanks to Covid and I am refilling my well.
We are busy of course with an almost three-year-old but I am able in the evenings to catch up a bit.
So let's start with Stylearc's Kitt dress. This pattern was a freebie a while ago and so I acquired it. Getting ready for my trip I decided I needed some knit dresses. Of course as usual my sewing ambitions were bigger than my sewing time so the simplicity of this pattern made it a sensible sew.
Here is the pattern illustration:
Ironically I made this dress out of fabric I ordered in from the marvellous Stonemountain and Daughter here is Berkeley. For some reason their shipping to Canada is super, super fast - whenever I make an order from them it arrives with in the week if not in a few days.
Not much to say about the construction of this little number obviously. The V neck is essentially one of those ones that is a knit band same as a T shirt with a little dart at centre front to make the miter.
Due to fabric shortage, I squeezed this out of what I had I actually also used knit bands to finish the sleeves. Honestly this whole project could not have been easier.
So here it is - an extremely simple dress and one I feel is perfect for a strong print.
I will be making more of these - why wouldn't I?
