If there's a spectrum of extravagance, from extra to basic, I fall somewhere around "opulent" and "lavish." Sometimes, that can crowd the closet, so I decided to make a basic dress that could handle a variety of accessories but still hold its own. The Brassia Dress is exactly that. With a simple, flattering silhouette, this is the perfect dress for pretty much anything. Paired with a belt and some booties, I'm prepared to take on the world! I made mine using Mood's Solid Boiled Wool so I could take it into the fall and winter months with ease, which is perfect since Mood just received a variety of new colors! This dress is so simple, it can really be made out of anything with a little stretch, especially since it has no closures to worry about. A sturdy fabric would be perfect for this dress, like cotton sateen, ponte knit, or one of our new chunky knits! I didn’t use French seams with this pattern since the wool is so soft anyway, but you can use them if you’re working with a more uncomfortable material.
