With temperatures dropping and winter on its way, it’s perhaps not the greatest time to make a summer dress with the deepest v-neck I ever dared to wear… But that’s what turtlenecks and tights are for, right?
Regardless of its seasonality, I enjoyed sewing this Lois midi dress very much. Tessuti‘s instructions were extremely detailed, and the many pictures made for a very straightforward process.
The Lois dress features a deep (and I mean deep) v-neck and a nice floaty A-line midi skirt. I love the cuffed arm bands and how the darts are located on the side seams of the skirt. This made it very easy to insert the invisible side zipper.
The floral rayon challis that I used is super soft and nice to work with. I’m not used to slippery lightweight fabrics so I took my time to cut the pieces.
I cut a size 6 (AUS sizing) and I didn’t make any alteration. The bust could perhaps use some adjustment and the v-neck could be a little less deep but I do like the general relaxed look of this dress.
Here are some pictures:
PS: here it is with that turtleneck-tights combo 😉
Thanks for looking!
