Knit Dress

A knit dress made of fabric with knitting trompe de l’oeil. I feel so meta.

I started with the dress sloper in Alison Glass’ Knit Essentials booklet and tweaked it repeatedly using her clear, comforting instructions. Worth every cent of the $22 for the fitting walk-through, and for the raw-edge neckline treatment and wearable ruffles that I plan to try at some point.

The Plantain is definitely my go-to for scoop necks, but this will likely be my TNT for vees and drapey knit dresses.

What is your TNT tee shirt pattern? Did it require a lot of mods?

Plantain Tee

This might be my new favorite tee shirt pattern. I love the fitted shoulders, the subtle-yet-forgiving shaping, and the deep scoop neck (which shows where my daughter’s rabbit bit me; long story).

I’m not sure whether it was the fabric or the pattern, but the neckband achieved the perfect medium between saggy and tourniquet.  The print is lovely; even if it is a little Alfred Dunner from a distance, it’s more Boden up close (no shade, Alfred Dunner).
