A maxi dress for the win! Terri hit the ball out of the park with the Studio pattern. For the price of one pattern, you get plenty of possibilities!!! Jumpsuit, jumpshorts, dress, maxi, 2 bodices etc.
I had to test the maxi and View A. I fell in love with View A instantly because it enhances the shoulder line beautifully.
Look at my lovely earrings (I’m fond of this Etsy shop, Bronze-N-Roses!)
I had this stripey knit, but, alas, not enough to make my stripes match!!! The dress is so comfy. I made my usual “little teapot” alterations: M bust blended to L at the waist and hips, bodice length-1″.
It’s a really quick sew, if you choose the dress. The Jumpsuit asks for an invisible zip so it might be more time-consuming, but Terri has great tutorials so don’t fear the zipper!
Pattern: Studio Jumpsuit and Dress, Sew Straight and Gather
Size Range: XXS to 4XL
Fabrics: knit with elasthan
Difficulty: dress is rated “beginner”, but I’ d rate the Jumpsuit as “intermediate” (invisible zipper sewn to knit)
