Romy Top & Dress
Upgrade your casual me-made wardrobe with this stylish (and comfy!) top and dress. The optional back ties or contrast binding add a fun twist to the classic Breton or t shirt dress.
Romy has a modern loose fit and high slash envelope neckline, with choice of cap, three quarter or full length sleeves for year-round style. Designed for knit fabrics, whip it up on either a regular sewing machine or overlocker (serger). Once you’ve made one, you’ll be hooked!
Romy includes jargon-busting instructions, helpful sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
Fabric: Medium weight, low stretch knit fabrics such as jersey or interlock. You could also use ponte for the long sleeve version. Avoid anything too lightweight, drapey or clingy. If you’re making the back ties version, avoid anything too bulky.
