Kosice Top and Dress

When Kennis from Itch-to-Stitch posted the pattern test for Kosice, I was so excited and so ready to sew something! I jumped right in with my top, loving the instructions and a new way of binding and applying the elastic. The front and back top edges have a bias strip facing and I love how it turns out. I chose to sew the elastic sleeve view.

Here are some details from the listing:

The Kosice Top & Dress is a beautiful peasant-style top or dress with a touch of modern-day romance. Designed for lightweight woven fabric, the Kosice comes in different cup sizes. A Kosice dress made with floral fabric would certainly stop traffic. Or use a bright and fun print to make a top that is suitable for everyday wear. The Kosice includes options for short flare sleeves and short sleeve with elastic hem.

  • Options for A, B, C, D and DD cups
  • Options for top and dress
  • Options for two raglan sleeves:
  • Short flare sleeves
  • Short sleeve with elastic hem
  • Dress option has sash
  • Button-down front
  • Front and Back V necklines
  • Elasticized shoulders
  • Sizes 00-20

This is the Danube Skirt, also from Itch-to-Stitch. My Kosice fabric is a cotton/maybe poly blend from stash. It felt like the right weight for this blouse that is finished with French seams.

After sewing up my top in no time, I decided to cut out a dress from some prized printed eyelet fabric I got at JoAnn’s a couple of years ago.

The right pattern didn’t come up until now and this one felt just right. I managed to squeeze my dress out of 1 1/3 yards but had to piece together the sash to do so. I really love this dress and may wear it to a wedding we will be attending in August.

  1. Very nice as I did see in my inbox that this pattern was on sale. Still deciding on it since I’m back up on projects at the moment. But it does look like a great pattern.
