New Pattern: Introducing the Michele Dress!

Good gracious. In the chaos and excitement of Design Indaba, I completely neglected to formally introduce to you... the Michele Dress! There's nothing quite like a fitted dress to get you through the day, and still have you feeling fresh and fashionable for an evening out.

The Michele dress includes simple features for a gently tailored fit that even beginner sewers can achieve. Master techniques like lining, inserting an invisible zip and setting sleeves.

Fitted in the waist, with a deep V-neck and knee-skimming skirt, the Michele dress cuts a modern and fun silhouette. It's a lovely warm weather wardrobe staple that's easy to make and comfy to wear.

And even now, as we're reaching the eve of summer and heading into transitional days, the lined Michele dress makes a great combination with boots and stockings. None of that awkward dress and sticky stocking nonsense!

Head over to the shop to buy the Michele dress pattern as a digital download for R129. If you're in Cape Town, you can also get the printed version of the sewing pattern at KIN on Kloof Street, or Annapatat in Muizenberg.
