Karolina Dress from Fresh Press Patterns
A dress sewing pattern that can be made in a combination of woven and knit fabrics together!
The Karolina dress is high on style and low on fussy sewing making it suitable for even beginners to sew. Combining two fabrics, a woven and a knit – it can be a great fabric stash buster. An elastic waistband at the back cinches you in while the front waist ties add attention. This sewing pattern has been drafted for women 5ft 4in to 5ft 6in tall. The dress front and ties are knit, while the back is woven. Go ahead and make yours in an all knit combination if you prefer or if you choose all woven you may need to size up and/or add a zipper.
Choose fabrics of a medium dress weight. Best sewn with all natural fibre or synthetic fibre fabrics - don’t mix and match as when you wash shrinkage rates might not be the same! For the knit front, choose medium weight rayon, viscose or poly knits and for the back, a shirting weight cotton, linen, rayon, viscose, polyester and silk will work best. This sewing pattern is available in sizes XS-3X.
