I'm taking a little detour from the Knock it Off series to introduce the first pattern release of my friend Terri from Sew Straight & Gather. She will be sharing her Knock Off next week, but today, it's the first day of her very first tour, and I just couldn't resist participating.
One thing you'll find with this pattern is options and lots of them! I chose to make 3/4 length sleeves and shorten the dress to a tunic in size 4. Truth be told, I intended to make a dress, but Anja really wanted me to use Wild Roses Turquoise Jersey Knit from l'oiseau and I didn't have enough. Can you blame her? It's gorgeous fabric! And we love how it turned out!
The Uptown/Downtown Dress is an A-line knit dress available in sizes two - 10 years. It's versatile design allows for either a casual or semi-formal look (or maybe somewhere in between). One unique element to the pattern that I thought was really great, is in addition to the three sleeve options, there are three additional design options included with full tutorials. That's a lot of looks!
