Anywho, back to the test sew.
I did pattern testing for Kennis at Itch to Stitch. Now that it’s released, I can finally show it off:
This is Kathryn Top and Dress by the lovely Kennis over at Itch to Stitch. It features a wide, pleated neckline, an empire waist with a simple cute A line skirt, with a self lined bodice. Kathryn is sewn up in a knit fabric. The cool thing about Kathryn, is that I can be done as a top or a dress. I don’t have very many daily wear dresses in my wardrobe, so I thought a dress would work out for me.
My version is done in cotton knit with obvious polka dots.
My alterations are: SBA, 3.5 inches off the length, and I cut about 1 inch off the sleeve length.
I would rate this pattern as a beginner, although there are pleats involved, they were very easy to sew and Kennis’ instructions are spot on simple.
I love this dress and have plans to make a few more. The pattern is on sale right now so please hurry over and snatch it up quickly.
Here’s a few photos:
As a side note, I haven’t made any of her other patterns, but Angelina Shorts was just released today too and it is cute and on sale too!!!
I very much enjoyed pattern testing and hopefully I will get the chance to do it again soon.
Until next time
