The Stasia Dress and Tee helps you create a knit dress that feels like wearing secret pajamas with optional pockets (but really, when pockets are an option, always choose pockets), and with multiple sleeve and length options or a close-fitting tee perfect for layering.
The paper pattern also includes tons of tips for sewing with knits. And all Sew Liberated patterns are so full of love!
The Stasia's secret is a v-front bodice, which highlights the smallest part of the waist and provides plenty of room below for beautiful bellies (the designer calls hers the empty baby house!) Wearing your Stasia Dress, your belly and hips will be free to hike, dance, and do all sorts of wonderful activities while still feeling like a million bucks.
✂️ This beautifully made paper pattern includes:
-13 women's sizes from 0-24 -Thorough step-by-step instructions with well illustrated diagrams and plenty of tips and hints. -Full-sized pattern pieces including seam allowances with no printing, cutting and taping required.
✂️ Stasia Materials List
All yardage based on 58” wide knit fabric. Fabric needs at least 40% stretch and quick recovery. For a flowy, soft dress or shirt, choose a fabric with rayon or bamboo content, in addition to spandex. For a more structured dress (and if you choose to add pockets) look for a mid-to-heavy weight fabric with at least 40% stretch and good recovery such as French terry, cotton jersey or ponte.
