Simplicity 1612 – Knit Dress


I love an easy-to-wear summer knit dress. I can’t have enough of them in my closet. My girlfriend Lise in Quebec sent me this beautiful textured ITY knit for my birthday. I knew it had to be a summer dress.


I made this version of Simplicity 1612 as a maxi dress last year and loved it. I shortened this dress (View A) by 1″. The front twist is nice but I think the back is what makes this dress interesting. As with my previous version I shortened the back elastic by 1.5″ in order to remove the possibility of gaping.


The bodice of this dress fits very well and is comfortable to wear. The twist front comes together easily. This was a quick sew yielding cute results.


Here’s a picture of the maxi dress I made last summer using this pattern:
