Buy the Davina Dress sewing pattern from Itch to Stitch. You can’t help but feel pretty and elegant in the Davina Dress with its curved v-neck and slightly-gathered front. The waistband is designed to sit high for a short-waist/long-leg look. The optional slash pockets add interest yet are very functional. You also have 5 sleeve options. It is a pattern that takes you through the hot summer and into the chilly fall. Above all, because it uses knit fabric, the Davina Dress is very comfortable too!

Suggested fabrics: Use light to medium-light weight knit fabric with at least 75% four-way stretch. Jersey, matte jersey, interlock and very lightweight french terry are great choices. If you use fabric with less stretch, you may choose a larger size. Conversely, if you use fabric with more stretch, you may choose a smaller size. The same fabric is used to line the bodice. However, if your knit fabric is on the heavier side, you may choose to line the bodice with a lighter-weight knit fabric. Jersey and tricot are great choices.
