Tessuti patterns Lois dress
It is so hot at the moment that I keep running out of clothes. Normally one or two very hot weather dresses will suffice for the British climate, but this years hot spell has lasted soooo long!
I made up some stashed, but precious Nani iro double gauze into a Tessuti patterns Lois dress. I have made this dress before in a silk velvet fabric to wear to a wedding reception. I bought the pattern as soon as it was released pretty much and I think its so versatile. The shape looks dressy or less so depending on fabric choice and I really want a linen as well as a silk satin version. This version I have just finished is perfect for all the occasions. I would just as happily wear it to the beach as I would to a wedding!
I cannot comment on the instructions as I didn't follow them, but the construction is pretty straight forward. I just about got away with not adding a zip because I chose not to go too fitted, which just made the whole thing even easier.
