Spring Dress Fun and games – comfy as a muumuu, stylish as a Jackie O shift dress

Inspiration:

Check out this simple to intermediate Yuki shift dress (with pockets) to stitch, using trans-seasonal, mid-weight, pure wool or wool blend fabric.

The Queen of multi-tasking shift dresses, good for any weather event ☀/⛈ , Like this week – 24 one day, 5 the next in my hometown!

Layer it up in cooler weather or on its own when the warmer weather hits!  😍

Did I mention pockets? ✨✨

Yuki Dress Pattern:

The Yuki Dress pattern by Tessuti is a great style – I wear mine all the time 💖💖💖

Easy to follow instructions and a great result😊

Loom fabrics sewing-notions and trims

What you need:

  • 1-2 meters fabric (depending on width)
  • Sewing machine (overlocker if available but not necessary)
  • Scissors
  • Tessuti Yuki Pattern
  • Thread

How you’ll put it together:

As always, remember to wash the fabric first! If you have chosen wool, a warm hand wash and line dry in the shade will do the trick.

Follow the excellent instructions included in the pattern ✨✨

Give yourself about 4 hours depending on your speed and ability.

Just because the store is shut for visitors doesn’t mean you can’t get inspiration or what you need sent out 🤩

I  will be in the store most afternoons while we are closed, and able to send out any orders or swatches after homeschooling or if you are local you can click and collect 😜

Please remember if you do come to collect you are not allowed into the store, and you must check-in. I can bring the eftpos terminal to the door though so all good!

Whilst I haven’t yet set up an official online store, I have a PayPal account that I can use to invoice. This gives you extra coverage with regards to the online shopping experience and means you don’t have to give me credit card details over the phone. I can email you an invoice with a link that takes you straight to Paypal for payment. This also means you can buy exactly the amount of fabric you wish!

Look forward to keeping you inspired and seeing you all in person real soon 🤩

It s a great time to try sewing something you haven’t done before. If you’ve always been afraid of sewing silk, why not give it a go? No one will know if you mess it up, which you probably won’t anyway! It’s such a lovely fabric to wear, and we have a great selection of prints to choose from.
