New York, New Yo...
Our fun, simple Kathrine dress is easy to sew and easy to wear. We love the fitted back with pleat and the full, loose movement in the front. Have fun accessorizing it, perhaps with multiple, brightly colored silk sashes, trendy bow ties, or piles of chunky necklaces. Next week, we’ll post the Plus Size of this dress, which we adjusted to better accommodate the plus figure.
We used a beautiful wool suiting material for the dress, and we couldn’t decide which color of the silk charmeuse we liked better for the sash, so we made both! And for the little button at the center back, we wanted it to be invisible, so we used a crochet loop, and put a small button on the inside of the dress. You can also put a crochet loop on your sash, and attach it to the dress via the same button.
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
