Description

Lenka wore this latest creation to work this week. A lovely shift dress with boat neck and cap sleeves , made up in our Italian digitally ponti knit Overview New York (sold out) and Burdastyle pattern #130 from magazine issue 1/2010. Lenka says she graded the pattern down two sizes from the smallest 36 as the pattern was too wide for her and eliminated the centre back seam and zipper (this one pulls easily over the head due to the wide neckline and the ponti stretch) as well as self lining the capped sleeves.

    Beautiful!! I have some Ponti and you have given me an idea. Sadly, it isn’t as lovely as this fabric.

    I made this out of a ponte knit as well. I ended up scooping the front neck and adding a bit more shape to the CB seam. I also eliminated the back zip. This is a great pattern for knits!
