Tutorial Tuesday :: Pleated Fit & Flare Dress Tutorial from Merrick's Art
There is no greater feeling than finding a figure flattering dress that you can wear all year long, and that is exactly what this Pleated Fit & Flare Dress Tutorial from Merrick of Merrick's Art is! This style of dress looks great on many different body types and is so easy to dress up for the office or night out, while it also can be kept casual with some cute sandals or a casual cardigan. As an added bonus, it is made with a super soft knit, so you will want to wear this dress over and over again, and will find yourself making it in several colors and prints. Happy Sewing!
Merrick provides a great tutorial with instructions and illustrations to help guide you through making your new dress. With two yards of fabric, a zipper and some thread, you will have a stunning new dress in very little time!
A cotton jersey knit will be the perfect fabric for this dress, light enough to wear now and good for layering as it gets cooler. You can also try sewing your new dress in a hacci sweater or ponte knit for a different feel. A few of my picks from the store:
