Pattern Review – (more) Simplicity 2444 in Arrowhead Rainbow Ponti

Here it is! Georgia’s new dress, it’s another version of pattern Simplicity 2444 made up in our striking Italian printed ponti knit ‘Arrowhead Rainbow – Ponti’ (sold out). This time Georgia sewed the darts further leaving just a small pleat at the top as well as adding self binding to the neckline and eliminating the back zip as the ponti knit has sufficient stretch to pull on without an opening! For an ideal winter dress three quarter sleeves were added, with an inverted pleat added to the sleeve head (instead of soft gathers as per pattern) as well as a cuff detail to the hem!
