A Year of Dresses: Opal Knit Flutter Dress and Top


You've seen it and loved it, this week I want to give you  an extra look at the newest pattern in The Diva Collection, the Opal Knit Flutter Dress and Top.  Many of you have requested this style in knit and Jen and definitely come through!  This pattern is amazing and I know you'll love it!

The Opal Knit Flutter pattern includes an extended size range from 12-18 months up through girls 9/10.  Included in the pattern is both a tunic length that is perfect for jeans and shorts and a dress length.  The dress length is perfect for pairing with leggings and boots this fall (or spring!). When the weather hits a cold spell, Opal is sweet layered over a tee for extra warmth! Sweet Pea is wearing Opal size two in dress length.  


Opal Knit Flutter pattern is an advanced beginner to intermediate sewing level.  The pattern is quick and simple, but assumes some knowledge of sewing with knits.  If you've not sewn knits before try a pair of Sterling Shorties and Leggings, which includes a full knit tutorial, and then make an Opal Flutter to match!

In addition to length options, Opal also includes a couple of yoke detail options.  I added the ruffle option and love the depth and detail that it adds.  


There is also an adorable bonus tutorial at the end of the pattern for a knit rosette!


Opal sews up quickly and is sure to be a hit with everyone.  Being knit, it is soft and comfortable for everyday wear.  It is a pull over style, which means no buttons or buttonholes! And of course, no ironing required!  I'm sure even the pickiest girl would love to wear an Opal Knit Flutter!
