The Ballet Dress was inspired by pretty and comfortable, knit practice dresses for ballerinas. With the three quarter length sleeves, elegant scoop neck and twirl-worthy semi circle this pattern makes the perfect everyday dress. Relax in comfort at home or dress it up with some tights and a scarf for a day out.
The Ballet Dress dress is designed for beginners and is a great introduction to sewing with knits! You'll learn how to add a collar, support your shoulder seams, add elastic to the waist, and use knit techniques like zig zag stitching and using a twin needle.
You don't need a serger to sew this pattern but if you have one, great!
This pattern was made in conjunction with an series on how to sew knits and includes a sew-along for the pattern which you can find on my blog at the link above.
I'm a crafter and creator at heart and recently sewing has really won me over. I love the challenge of making patterns and sharing some of my skills with other stitchers. My goal this year is to create a more wearable and useful wardrobe that is still fun and stylish.
I live in Austin, TX with my boyfriend and my neurotic cat, Peanut.
