Lark Inspiration and Swatches | Lark Dress Variation Pack

May 1, 2017   /   bySarah  / Categories :  Feeds

Last week we released the Lark Dress Variation Pack so that you can turn that favorite tee shirt into a dress. We are getting into the season where we want to be sitting dock side. And sitting comfortably! We found inspiration for this pattern in minimal lines, shapes and colors.

Have you heard of The Fabric Store? They are a New Zealand based fabric retailer with a mouth watering selection. Those of you who live in Los Angeles can give them a personal visit. The rest of us can shop online though!

Their New Zealand Merino Wool Jersey is out of this world! Stretchy, soft and it has excellent wicking. They just had to make it even sweeter by carrying it in so many fantastic colors! Picking one is too much for me so I am working on a color blocked Lark Dress. It’s like putting together a wearable color study.

The simplicity of the Lark Dress makes it perfect for any occasion. If you use a black linen jersey and pair it with a scarf or statement necklace it can be an elegant little black dress for a summer date. In white linen jersey it can be a dress that you throw over a bathing suit. It’s the perfect silhouette for pattern as well! We are getting so close to summer and I am really excited about wearing pattern. Especially orange blossoms!
