I can not say I am a fan of working with stretchy materials like spandex and t-shirt jersey, but when you hand me in sweater knit fabric – I am all in. The reason I like it: it is soft, light and you can pair it up in the most extraordinary combinations. This time I was craving to make a dress that would be presentable, but easy to wear at the same time. By easy I meant that it won’t require too much of work to dress it up.
As usually you can find my project at Burda studio here.
That is also one of the projects that I will be submitting this month for The Monthly Stitch challenge.
Materials: blue lace, white crepe, silver & blue sweater knit
Pattern: New Look raglan t-shirt ( I traced it out longer accordingly to the length of my dress)
I decided to add a bit more of a twist by adding scalloped lace edges as a rim of the neckline and at the bottom, on both sides. In my opinion, this dress would be suitable better for autumn or winter, since it is made out of sweater knit, although it is a quite fine knit and blends in together nicely.
P.S.: It is not the first raglan t-shirt dress that I made, check out this one.
