, you'll know that we've just released our new spring/summer range of ponti knits
. We were so excited when we purchased these lovelies in Europe so it's been SUPER exciting to release them to you guys. A great ponti knit is truly one of the most fabulous of fabrics. It's perfect for slim pants and leggings (like our Anita Ponti Pants
), jackets, tube/pencil skirts, dresses and tops. Alllllll the possibilities!
For this dress I made for Gabby, I used the fabulous Fossetti Fantasia Punto
. This wild, wacky and whimsical print is so much fun!
The simple dress design was inspired from one that Gabby spied in a RTW. For the top bodice, I used Vogue 8815
(a TNT pattern as shown here
For the skirt part of the dress, I drafted my own pattern pieces. To give the dress more of a kick, I added a hem facing which helps it flute out nicely.
