Simple Knit Dress

Not a long post today, but showing off something successful that I made during our recent school holidays.

A simple knit, trapeze dress using a crazy, wild fabric from Tessuti.


I loosely based this on the Tessuti Gabby dress and the Grainline lark tee patterns. I really love this dress and am finding that I get complimented every time I wear it. This might be another case of listening to the people around me and wearing more colour.

Fingers crossed that life settles a little more in the coming fortnight. I haven’t sewn for weeks!

    really pretty, and yes, color! looks good on you.

  • The colours are lovely in your dress. They really suit you! You can’t go far wrong with a tee shirt dress especially when life is busy.

    It’s a great dress! Love the print you chose!

    I loved that fabric but decided I didn’t need it! I’m glad it looks so good made up. If it’s anything like as hot where you are as here, everything is too hard!

    Love this style and your fabric choice. No wonder you are receiving compliments.
