I’m still counting on some warm weather here on the Central Coast of California so my summer sewing continues in earnest. I made New Look 6071 with sleeves a few years ago and have always wanted to make a sleeveless version.
I bought this ITY knit at Tissue Mode De L’Orme in Granby, QC last summer while on vacation. I purposely shopped for knits that I could use to make simple summer dresses. I’ve decided that these dresses are just right for the hot humid weather we experience when travelling as well as the cooler weather we have on the Central Coast. I can add a lightweight jacket and I’m good to go.
I didn’t make any changes to the pattern and sewed my usual size 8. This was a quick sew with good results.
I think this style of dress is flattering and easy to wear. This pattern is definitely worth hanging on to.
