The summer season is officially upon us which means it’s time to bare those shoulders in the June Pattern of the Month, the “Ashlin” Dress! This pattern is the one that is one heavy rotation in my handmade wardrobe. It is a wonderful weekend sew and has lots of options including knee length or maxi with optional slits. “Ashlin” is designed for knits (note: the more drape the knit has the lower the armscye will be) and works in a variety of knits and comes with a size range of 0-18.
“Ashlin” isn’t limited to just being a dress to wear out and about all summer, but makes a comfortable swim cover up, I wear this one constantly to the pool! The lightweight knit dries quickly and the bold print is just right at the pool.
I also have a knee-length version that I wear in a plum knit for a nightgown during the warm summer evenings. This navy ponte knit maxi version with a slit is my go to summer date night dress:
Throughout the month I will be showing you how to style it (and yes it was designed to show your bra on the sides), common adjustments, and more. Grab your copy of the “Ashlin” Dress in the shop for only $7.50 while it is the Pattern of the Month.
