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
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.
Kosice Top & Dress is on sale for $9.60 (no code needed) until July 28. Be sure to get your copy!
