Just knot it

Almost together with our Tulip dress, another beautiful Belgian dress pattern was released. Riet is a sewing friend of mine and every pattern she designs is just spot on. So is Just Knot It, her newest dress!

Eyecatcher is the back. No zippers or button plackets, the dress closes with a little 'knot'.

And yes, I did add a button placket. Autumn is approaching and I wanted the dress to be worn on cooler days as well. The button placket is an extra option that comes with the pattern.

Second eyecatcher are the side seams. They don't close like 'normal' dresses do (although Riet offers the option of closed side seams too) but overlap under the armpits.

Third eyecatcher (oh yes! This pattern is so amazing and unique!) is the pleated front. Again, the pattern offers a plain and simple option too, but I'm so in love with the details that I wanted to add them all!

Since there are so many pattern pieces, the dress almost asks for color blocking. So that's what I did! I used 6 different fabrics: Kona cotton in  Canary, Woodrose, Bahama Blue, Lime and Papaya (bought at Bambiblauw), combined with Robert Kaufmans Geo Pop Sorbet.

The result is a dress that suits my little friend Loes perfectly. The lively colors are beautiful against her toned skin and at the same time they fit her character. She is playful, mischievous and always happy, just like her dress!

Loes and I, we both love Just Knot It

  2. What a gorgeous dress! Love all the details. The colours definitely suit your young model, I smiled reading her personality is just as bright :) Isn't it great to be able to make clothes that not only fits a wearer's body but also their personality :D

    1. It is! For myself I would never have chosen these colors and while sewing I thought several times "Oh my god, this is going to be way over the top!", but when she put on the dress, it worked out just perfect!
