I’ve got a super easy to sew pattern that is beginner friendly for knit fabrics. The Tessa Sheath dress from Love Notions fits the bill and I’ve made 2: one for my Sister in law and one for myself. A few seams and done :)
Come and join me for fitting and sewing!
The Tessa Sheath dress has been re-released to improve sizing to 5X and add the full bust option. The price is 60% off ($5) today Friday the 10th ONLY. Saturday an Sunday, the pattern will be 25% off ($9). Remember to use my code KARINA10 for an extra 10% off, on top of the discounted prices.
