Tessuti Pia in Hemp Knit

Tessuti Pia
2014 sewing continued....


I like the idea of easy-wear knit dresses, however, they are not something I find easy to wear. I have a small bust yet wide hips, so things that fit up top, cling to the bumps down below. I decided to have a go at using Tessuti's Pia pattern in a knit fabric. I thought this would be better suited to my shape given the fullness of the skirt.

I made it up using a hemp/cotton blend from Emma One Sock. I sewed it both on my sewing machine and overlocker. I finished the neckline and armholes by turning the fabric under and sewing a small zigzag.

I have been wearing this all Summer. I think it has got quite a bit shorter during that time. The verdict - it's a super comfy and an easy go-to super casual dress.

  1. I love this on you and think your idea of using a knit is brilliant! This is the first Pia that I've liked. And I think I'll give it a go, the pockets are adorable in the knit. And the colors and stripe are so cute. Wonderful!
