The Carolyn TNT dress.
The easiest dress I have ever made.
Seriously, what a great dress pattern this is! The dress was so easy to make that I really have nothing to say about the construction at all, but the cut and fit are great. No sleeves, no vent, just a simple versatile dress. I can see this made up in different fabrics and being perfect for work, casual or cocktail wear and that's without even starting to think about embellishments.
For this version (and yes I am certain there will be more), I used an embroidered cotton from my stash, it has a slight stretch to it but you don't need stretch fabric for this pattern. This version is unlined as I wanted to keep it as a simple cotton summer dress, although I think I could easily dress this up for a night out too.
Sizewise, I usually make a 38 with an FBA in wovens for BWOF, but I found (by the highly scientific pattern measuring system of holding the pieces up on my dressform) that this was not necessary for this dress so I made a straight 38, tapering out to a 40 in the hips. Something to watch out for if you are petite up top!
Really I highly recommend trying this pattern, I will have to exercise a lot of control not to end up with an entire closet full of these!
