⏩ Story of this Pattern ⏪ Tomi invited me for an ice cream on the first warm day of spring. The first ice cream cone of the season was an occasion deserving a new dress, and this one was both quick and comfy!
⏩ Details ⏪ This is the perfect knit fit-and-flare dress. The fitted top shows off your bust and waist and then widens into a classic full skirt. There is no waist seam (nothing to pull uncomfortably if you decide to have a second ice cream cone); the flare of the skirt comes from the graceful long vertical seams.
The dress has elbow-length sleeves ending in an interesting split cuff. Two pocket variations are included: a patch pocket with a split echoing the sleeve cuff, or a hidden in-seam pocket.

⏩ Difficulty⏪ Intermediate. This pattern assumes the sewer is familiar with techniques such as sewing straight and curved seams, interfacing, hemming, and sewing knit fabrics with straight and stretch seams.
You should also be familiar with how to print and assemble pdf patterns, as this pattern doesn’t include any separate instructions for doing so.
⏩ Sizes ⏪ This pattern is available in European sizes 34 to 48. See the third picture above for exact measurements and sizing information.
⏩ Fabrics and Notions ⏪ This dress is designed for medium-weight knit fabrics with a good amount of stretch (medium jersey, double knit, ponte roma, etc). It can certainly be made with lighter or heavier fabrics, but this will change the drape of the skirt. You will need 2.3 meters of 150 cm wide fabric (2½ yards of 60” wide) or 3 meters of 115 cm wide fabric (3¼ yards of 45” wide). If your fabric has a print that you would like to match (stripes, for example), you may need more fabric. If your fabric will shrink during washing, buy extra so you don’t end up short!
You will also need some small scraps of fusible interfacing (less than 10 cm / 4 inches), and thread matching your main fabric.
