Our favorite, tried and true, throw-on-and-feel-great even in the most rushed morning, pattern is back and even better.
The Stasia Dress and Tee pattern now includes our full size range, fitting up to a size 34
With the same subtle V in the front, fitted bodice, and flowing skirt, Stasia just has a little something extra, feels a little more special than your average knit dress. Whether you’re going for a playful skater dress, or a sultry maxi dress, Stasia will help your find your confidence, from sewing with knits to wearing them.
This new update to our Stasia pattern goes deeper than just a new, inclusive size range. We improved the overall fit, based on feedback collected over time, including adding an option to sew a higher back neckline, and a better fit for all sizes in the shoulders and arms.
We simplified the skirt length options a little, to smooth your journey through the instructions. You can choose between above-the-knee and long midi skirts. (This let us simplify pattern piece printing as well. Now print just a single pattern sheet per size.) Easily lengthen or shorten the skirt to your liking and style.
And we gave the sleeves a little love. In the pattern as originally released, you could have short or 3/4 length sleeves. Well, add long sleeves to that list!
We’ve also made a full video sew-along, to help you tackle knits and make your perfect Stasia dress, no matter which view you choose. Follow along, and learn about finishing seams, sewing with a stretch stitch, and hemming knits.
Whether you love sewing knits or have never tried it before, Stasia is fun, quick sew, that can slide easily into any closet. A tee, a tank, or a dress, with short, long, or 3/4 length sleeves, and skirt that can be made knee length to maxi, there is a Stasia to suit every style.
We recommend knits with at least 40% stretch and quick recovery. For a flowy, soft dress or shirt, choose a fabric with rayon or bamboo content, in addition to spandex. For a more structured dress (and if you choose to add pockets) look for a mid-to-heavy weight fabric with at least 40% stretch and good recovery such as French terry, cotton jersey or ponte.
We are looking forward to more people being able to enjoy making and wearing a Stasia Dress or Tee. Please share your creation! #StasiaDress #SewLiberated
