Welcome to one of three stop on today’s Sew Straight Patterns Blog Tour! We are celebrating of the release of The Uptown/Downtown Dress Pattern! Be sure to read all the way to the bottom to learn how you can enter the giveaway AND get 30% off the Uptown/Downtown Pattern now through August 16th!
The Uptown/Downtown dress, available in sizes 2T – size 10! Isn’t it adorable? I made the entire dress on my serger using a 5-thread safety stitch and the cover stitch, but the good news is, you don’t need a serger to make this adorable knit dress!
The Uptown/Downtown dress goes together in a flash and makes a comfy and adorable back-to-school and every-day dress. You can make it sleeveless, with cap sleeves (shown here) or with half sleeves.
Elise’s measurements fell under the 2T size in the chart so that’s exactly what I made with no alterations. She loved the dress immediately and didn’t want to take it off. She just had to wear it to church the next day!
All the pattern pieces wen’t together perfectly! I chose the binding method, but there are also instructions for using a lining for sheerer knits or just for warmth. Overall I’d say it was a win and a pattern we’ll make over and over!
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit the Straight Stitch Pattern Company to see the rest of today’s tour stops!
