We’re starting of 2022 with a bang! The Kelli’s and Charli’s Dress pattern will have you feeling fabulous and glamorous throughout the year! When I put on the Kelli’s Dress I cannot help but strike a pose and smile… and I hope you feel the same when you put yours on! The Kelli’s and Charli’s Dresses have a beautiful gathered detail to the wasitline that gives a lovely and flattering line. You can grab those thinner, dressier knits that aren’t stable enough for wiggles and galas and now have the perfect dress to use them on!
Named for one of my life long friends, Kelli’s Dress has a gorgeous gathering detail along the side seam from underbust to high hip creating a beautiful detail and flattering lines. The cross over V neck is again a flattering open neckline, but with 4 way stretch fabrics, it can give you a lot of wiggle room to play with the neckline coverage. Sleeve options will take you from summer to winter in a heart beat and the different lengths will take you from casual to a formal event easily. The dramatic floor length with split is the most fun thing you’ll wear! You cannot help but instantly feel glamourous and start striking poses. Not wanting to show off all that leg? No problem, the floor length also has a no split option that is still stunning. Shorter lengths are mini for a fun night out or knee for a perfect everyday look or cocktail in different fabrics. Kelli’s Dress is drafted for thin to medium stretch knits absolutely perfect for those stretchy glitter poly blends you find, double brushed poly, stretch lace, waffle knit, sweater knit, ribbed knits, light weight cotton spandex, and stretch velvet. The options for the Kelli’s Dress include:
- Tank, Cap Sleeve, 3/4 Sleeve, and Long Sleeve
- Mini, Knee, Floor with Slit, and Floor with No Slit (Charli’s-Youth has Knee and Floor Length only).
- Neckline Facings or Elastic Hem
The youth sizes range from 3m – 14 and the adult sizes are for the full, newer size chart, extending from XXS – Plus 5X for the Hourglass Figure and XXS-6XL for the V Figure. *Want to learn more about how to measure yourself for these pattern?
