An easy to sew dress, tee & sweatshirt for all seasons.
Fun & versatile, this dress/tee comes in both long and short sleeve options. Mix a knit front with a woven back (recommended cotton jersey T shirting front) and contrasting neck, sleeve and hembands. The dolman sleeve makes it super quick and easy to sew - and no, you don't need an overlocker/serger.

The pattern comes with a range of applique templates - entirely optional - but fun to sew on a sleeve, back or front of your garment.

    >RECOMMENDED FABRIC:

    Please scroll through to the last image for the size and fabric requirements chart.

    KNIT front: Cotton T shirting is perfect
    WOVEN back : Most light to mid weight woven fabrics will suit this garment (viscose rayon, silk, polyester crepe, cotton and linen)

    We recommend rayon, silk, polyester, light weight linen, cotton and cotton blends for summer. Heavier weight fabric and long sleeve options is perfect for cooler temperatures.  We also recommend putting the jersey knit fabric on the front (to allow for more movement/stretch over the bust) and the woven on the back.
