Black Knit Knotted Dress

Added Feb 5, 2018

I made this dress pattern as part of my Burda Challegne 2018! I challenged myself to make at least 1 other pattern from the current issue of the magazine other than my Mash Up, and this pattern just had to be made. The knotted waistline is so flattering and brings dimension and visual interest to the dress. I was really in need of a black dress that I could wear again and again, so I opted for this black cotton knit. The midi hemline threw me off a little bit since I’m so petite, and I was sure I was going to have to crop it, but after I completed the dress I tried it on and decided this was going to be a midi dress for me!

Material Notes

Black cotton knit.

    Love it! I understand your concerns about the length of the skirt part (I am also ‘not that tall’ haha) but this length totally works! Very stylish with the red earrings.
