When it comes to knits, I’m definitely an over-sized sweater kinda girl. But lately, I’ve been obsessed with sweater dresses and everything ribbed. So when I was on the hunt for a great quality ribbed knit, I hit pay dirt with this amazing Italian wool rib knit from Mood Fabrics.com (also available in a 4×2 rib). It’s medium weight, drapes nicely and cuts and sews with ease. It’s available in three colors and a cool weather must have.
The pattern used for this dress was Vintage Vogue 8615 with the following pattern alterations:
- Added a seam separating the bodice from the skirt in the front and back
- Removed the back zipper
- Increased the side slit
- Added a metal zipper to the side slit
