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 a 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.

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 create 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.
I hope you enjoy the detailing of the dress and combination of everything all together!
