NEW :: The Yuki Dress Pattern
Meet our newest pattern – the Yuki Dress! We’re SO excited for this autumn release because it really is the perfect style for those in-between seasons. The overall design is a loose fitting, knee length tunic dress which features extended shoulders, forward angled side seams, a tapered hemline, side pockets and a funnel style collar with drawstring tie.
Our favourite feature of this design is the contrast collar, made in a lighter fabric, which drapes around the neck like a soft cowl. By adjusting the tie you can sit the neckline higher or lower. You can mix up your colour combinations (like pairing navy and black) or stick with an overall monochromatic look like we’ve done here with this version.
The Yuki Dress can be worn on its own or layered over a fitted top which make it absolutely perfect as a trans-seasonal wardrobe piece. I’m wearing it below with our Alexa T Top and for extra warmth, it looks fabulous with turtlenecks too.
Suitable fabrics for the Yuki Dress (main) are basically any fabric that drapes well. We’re talking wool crepe (like the Nero Motiv I’ve used here), viscose/triacetate crepe (see our Cady range), crepe blends, viscose, acetate, heavy silk satin and some softer linens. For the contrast collar, we recommend lighter fabrics such as viscose georgette, silk crepe de chine and double silk georgette.
The Yuki Dress comes in (Australian) sizes XXS through to XL and is now available in both hardcopy and PDF copy shop/print-at-home version.
