Oceanside Dress From Itch To Stitch: Easy Style For Every Day!

I've been making lots of dresses this spring and challenging myself to wear them. So far, I have been semi-successful. I'm finding it really tough to get dressed every day knowing I'm going to spend it sitting in front of a computer working at home. I'm really not sure how the Housewives of Bygone Days dressed up every day to clean the toilet and wash dishes. It seems like so much effort when I can hang out in my comfy jammies and use that primp time for sewing instead.



Naturally, my solution is to make some secret pajama dresses for those days when you just want to put your hair in a clip and look cute. Oceanside Dress from Itch-To-Stitch Designs is new today and definitely fits that Easy Style requirement. Pattern Details Oceanside is a knit dress with short, raglan sleeves, a fitted waist and a flirty half circle skirt. It's an incredibly comfortable and versatile style that looks great with everything from sneakers to tights & boots!

From what Google tells me, the cold shoulder trend is an evolution of Brigitte Bardot's signature "off the shoulder" style from the 50's and 60's.

It features A, B, C, D and DD cup sizes plus, as always, the downloadable file is formatted with PDF layers so you can print only the size(s) relevant for you.

Additional Design Features include:- Cold Shoulder Kimono sleeves with cuffs.  - …
