I saw a cute, summery dress in Cos that combined knit and woven fabrics – a tee shirt style, with a bright pop of fabric by way of a large hem band. Then my friend Juju saw the same dress and created a great tutorial describing how to make your own!
tutorial is very easy to follow, and worked well – though I was using a
crew neck/set in sleeve pattern, rather than a raglan.
was also very fast to sew, as it’s basically an oversized tee shirt –
the key element being that the hem band matched across the side seams,
and the neck band was tight enough (my least favourite part). I added a small breast pocket in the hem fabric, to carry the colour up to my face.
the style is not terribly flattering on me so it will likely be
relegated to a wear around the house, or to the shops type dress – or to
the beach when I go and visit Mum, but it is super comfortable and fun.
