Bright color and eye-catching contrast define this simple fall dress that's ready for layering! Treadlette Nina made this cute dress using two complementary shades of solid ponte knit with contrast color-block pockets and neckband trim.
Nina used New Look 6298, a simple dress with options, including those huge pockets that we all dream of!

Today's Treadlette garment is this knit & woven dress made by me, Elizabeth! I chose Burda 6352 (shown below) because I loved the asymmetric shape and the use of both woven and knit fabric.
The top is a cotton jersey, while the skirt is a floral printed rayon challis with tons of swishy drape.
One note on this pattern: it runs VERY large. I went two sizes down from my usual size in the bust and waist and it was still incredibly roomy. I also cut the skirt just a bit shorter than the long version because I didn't want that front point trailing on the ground!
Otherwise, this project was super simple and sewed up very fast! Just right to add to my fall wardrobe!
Have you seen the new velvet yet? It's really something splendid! This silk and rayon blend velvet has a lush, deep pile and a soft drape. Any of our new colors would be perfect for a gorgeous autumn garment!
