The Heather Dress
Description: If you live in knits, the Heather Dress sewing pattern is for you!
Versatile and super comfy, the Heather Dress is sure to be a wardrobe staple. A gorgeously chic jersey dress, Heather can be smart as well as casual and will keep you looking put-together and fab wherever you are; at work, for dinner out or just at home.
The Heather Dress has cleverly concealed in-seam pockets (always a winner!) and a paneled bodice which makes fitting a dream. With opportunities for color blocking you can really make Heather your own. Stay subtle in a solid fabric, go jazzy in a print, or go bold and mix the two to make a feature of the lines. There are three sleeve options to suit the seasons – choose from a short capped sleeve, 3/4 length or full length.

Suggested fabric: For the Heather Dress sewing pattern we recommend a medium weight knit fabric with a low stretch percentage, such as a ponte di roma, double knit jersey or interlock knits. Stable and substantial, these fabrics don’t wriggle around like lightweight jersey and are easy to sew.
We also recommend you use a ballpoint needle with knit fabrics to avoid snagging your dress.
