Style Arc Alissa knit dress

I am trying really hard to catch up with blogging.  Although there are still quite a few things left to blog from last year, I’ve decided to try to get this year’s garments up here in preference.  If I can keep this rate of blogging up I might be up to date by the end of the year. The photos of this dress were taken back in February!

This is the Style Arc Alissa knit dress, in printed poly/spandex from Darn Cheap Fabrics. I just couldn’t resist all the colours in the print!

I sewed size 12, no alterations. The round neckline has a binding that is applied to the right side then turned to the inside and stitched in place. This gives a very neat finish.

I really like the overall silhouette – on the straight side, but not fitted. This was easy to sew. The only slightly tricky bit is the pocket – but honestly, it’s not hard, just read the instructions and diagram and you’ll be fine. It’s just not what most of us are used to doing (unless you sew a lot of patterns by Marcy Tilton or the ilk).

Style Arc describe this pattern as follows: Achieve a designer look with this simple dress. The asymmetrical drape pocket that is cleverly designed makes this style look complex but is an easy sew. The ¾ sleeves make this style versatile and suitable for any season. FABRIC SUGGESTION: Knit jersey or any knit fabric with drape.

This is an effective pattern that looks much more challenging to sew than it actually is.  It was quick to make (much of it on the overlocker) and it is comfortable to wear.  Recommended!
