  • Tutorial: Ristretto Dress with Lining

    July 10, 2013 by Skirt as Top

    Hi, I'm Britex Guest Blogger Kristin from skirt as top, and today I'm back to share a dress I made using Britex's Smoke & Coffee Stretch Cotton, which I reeeally loved working with. This dress is actually a remix of my favorite dress pattern, Made by Rae's Washi Dress, and though as I sewed it I was calling it "Frankenwashi," I came up with a prettier moniker now that it's all done.  Named after one of our favorite coffee shops and alluding to the rich and complex color of the fabric---I'm calling it the Ristretto Dress!

    My favorite sewing challenge is to take a proven, great-fitting, well-written pattern and modify it into something new.  I do it when I sew for my kids all the time, but haven't ventured into doing it for myself too often yet.
