Tessuti Yuki Dress


This is my first time making a Tessuti pattern, but I couldn't resist the Yuki Dress. It's just the sort of dress to wear when I want to eat a big lunch and feel completely comfortable! Having said that, I could probably have gone down a size from the Medium as it is a bit roomy. 

 

What drew me to this pattern was the neckline, which has a funnel style piece gathered in at the top with a drawstring. The dress itself is a simple cocoon shape with side seam pockets.


I made the dress with a thick, spongy, wool blend (I think) from the Morrison sale. I used blue and black printed knit from a $5 remnant bag from Potter Textiles for the neck and a twisty drawstring I found in my bag of strings. Since this is a winter dress, I made a Nettie Bodysuit to go underneath and added some of the remnant fabric to the sleeves. I also made black Virginia leggings to complete the outfit.


It was difficult to photograph this black outfit on a dull day, but you can just about see the details.


I really like the simplicity of this pattern and it was very quick and easy to sew. I thought the instructions were good too. The dress, although slightly big, is so lovely and cosy to wear and I love the overall effect of the contrasting neckline and matching bodysuit sleeves.

  2. Love your whole outfit! It's just the sort of outfit I wear all the time :) I'm a big fan of Tessuti. I just finished their Pia Dress and have their Leni in my stash as well. Their instructions are amazing! Full colour photos - excellent.

  3. Love this whole outfit! Great idea to add the contrasting fabric to the neckline and the sleeves. Looks very comfortable and stylish too. I have never made a Tessuti pattern before either, but they do have a few I wouldn't mind trying.
