Hey readers! We're so happy to introduce you to our latest pattern - the Frankie Top/Dress
. In addition to being a cruisy sew, she's also pretty versatile and we love her because she's suitable for ALL the seasons.
The pattern features a flared hemline, set in sleeves and comes with numerous style options - a top, two dress lengths and four sleeve lengths (short, elbow, three quarter and full). Oh the possibilities!
The bateau neckline features a simple turned back front and, for extra strength, we've included a stitched-down back facing that creates a neat and secure neckline.
Frankie's also fantastic as a trans-seasonal layering piece too. The full length works perfectly in the cooler months and can be worn with shirts. She's a total match made in wardrobe heaven with our Sydney Jacket
I made up this version in our Hashtag Black
which is - hands down - my favourite jersey composition (viscose/spandex). It's weighty and drapey and holds both colour and memory in a way that so many knits just don't. It also washes like a dream and is all over perfect for Frankie. You can see our full range here
Anita from our Surry Hills store made her glam version (below) in our Sparkling Romance
, an Italian
74% acetate, 19% polyamide, 7% elastane metallic jersey. It also comes in Graphite
With this pattern, you can shorten both top and dress lengths at the hem.
The Frankie Top/Dress Pattern is now available
in both hardcopy and PDF print-at-home/actual size copy shop versions with (Australian) sizes XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL all included. Suitable fabrics include light to mid weight jerseys and light weight ponti knits.
