Winter has begun here in Canada, and last few days have been nothing but snow. Our yard looks like a winter wonderland and it has me feeling some type of way!
I've been working so hard lately to put together and test out new patterns. And this one is one of my favourites to date. I love the peplum sleeve detail and it's such an easy dress to sew up. My inspiration for this dress was to make something that is perfect for a winter holiday party.
I hope you enjoy sewing this dress up and if you do make it please remember to tag me on social media @thelittleststudio!
This pattern is drafted for knit fabrics only.
The best fabric for this pattern is a medium to heavy weight knit
fabric: Ponte De Roma or a Double Knit
Look for something that has some spandex in the contents.
You want it to have good recovery when stretched.
You want some structure to the fabric. If you choose a lighter fabric
you may have to modify the neckline finish to a narrow binding.

Sew this dress using a 1/4" seam allowance, and sew using a overlock stitch. I used my serger for the majority of this dress, but you can use a regular sewing machine.
