Dress Pattern Edit: Knit Dresses

It’s full on winter for many of us right now, with snowy weather for some! So, today we wanted to share some dresses that are designed for knit fabrics. Not only are knit fabrics easy to sew with (easy fitting and no need to finish seams) they are perfect for keeping you warm, comfortable, and cosy. Have a look at some of our favourite patterns and hopefully you’ll find something toasty!
