Sharing: Named Clothing Kielo Wrap Dress in Floral Jersey for Girl Charlee



All the info is over at the Girl Charlee blog and I go into lots of detail about hemming knits, including lighter weight fabrics, on a standard sewing machine and share samples demonstrating a range of techniques and methods.  Pattern and fabric were kindly provided by Named Clothing and Girl Charlee in return for the blog post.  I chose this patterns after meeting another sewist (Shiona) wearing the Kielo and realising that the style had a lot more appeal for me than I initially thought- seeing things in the flesh can make all the difference!

  1. I went over to Girl Charlee as I recently sewed an awful coverstitch hem. I think I need to change to a stretch needle. Thanks for all the other tips.
    This dress is so you. Very pretty.

  2. This looks super on you. Having looked at the original pattern I can see what you mean about not being so appealing but as you've made it, it looks a versatile floaty dress looks much more enticing.
