Kailua Town Dress, Available MEOW!


Oh hello!  Little Lizard King is back a second time this week with another new release!  Kailua Town Dress is a knit/woven combo dress, featuring a curved front bodice, natural hi-low hem and no neck binding (YAY).

Pattern Details:
  • Sizes 12m - Girls' 14
  • Bodice: Knit (lined, eliminating neck banding)
  • Sleeves: Long or Elbow, banded sleeve
  • Skirt: Hi-Low Double Ruffle Bubble or Simple Gathered
  • Pattern Pieces: Layered (Choose the size(s) you need)

If knit has scared you before, this is a great beginner pattern.  The pattern is very easy to follow and has great tips for stabilizing your knit before adding your woven bottom fabric.

I chose to make the elbow length sleeves (my daughter is anti-long sleeve) and the simple gathered skirt.  I love how the curve of  the bodice tugs the skirt slightly upward for a natural hi-low hem.  I added two decorative buttons to draw a bit of the white upward.

I have a few more planned -- it's a great way to use up some knit scraps.

 Cassie (the lovely designer) is sharing a tutorial {Monday} on how to turn it into a top!  It's sooo adorable!
