The Whitney dress and top is a versatile garment designed to be sewn in jersey. It features a wrap front with a modest V neckline, an elegant A-line skirt that comes below the knee or a peplum for the top version, three sleeve length options and ties that keep the garment closed, while cinching you in at the waist. But the most unique detail of this pattern is the scalloped trim around the neckline, which adds a touch of playfulness to this otherwise classic garment.
Whitney comes in 2 versions, both featuring the beautiful scalloped trim detail. If you prefer a simpler garment though, you can omit the trim and create a classic wrap. The pattern also offers 5 different cup size options (A, B, C, D, DD) to guarantee that you will achieve the perfect fit.
The Whitney dress and top is a pattern for advanced beginners. The scalloped trim detail requires some attention and experience in working with knit fabrics, but otherwise it is a pretty straightforward project with clear instructions.
Medium weight knit fabrics with approximately 30% -50% stretch. We recommend avoiding anything too stretchy and lightweight. A medium weight cotton jersey, a cotton spandex knit or a ponte di Roma would be good options, always depending on the time of year that you intend to wear your dress.
Try to stay away from very lightweight, very stretch knit fabrics as they are more difficult to handle and they also don’t have the appropriate weight to give you a nicely finished scalloped edge for the binding. Jerseys with a little bit more weight are much easier to work with.
