This knit dress is made from Simplicity Lisette Pattern 2060. Fabric is polyester blend that looks a bit like a wool. This is a pull-on dress, with side darts, gently curved yoke with soft gathers at the front, a button closure at the left shoulder, and a matching obi (sash) belt. This dress was very easy to make despite the fact that I don’t have an overlock machine. I used elastic stitch on my Singer instead and double needle for the bottom of the dress and sleeves.
