20% Off Code for Kielo Pattern: SEWINGTHERAPY <—- Hurry! Valid until Oct. 10th. 2021
Hello and welcome back. I’m Sara, here to sew along with you! Yay! The Kielo wrap dress is here. Today I’m excited to collaborate with Named Clothing, a pattern design company headed by a Scandinavian duo who create remarkable patterns that are enjoyable to sew and to wear. They are committed to sustainable sewing and have even written two substantial books to help you create a coherent capsule wardrobe.
Named sent me the Kielo Dress and Jumpsuit pattern, a creative and versatile piece. Although it was written with a knit fabric in mind, I wondered what it would look like with a woven and decided to give it a try. And I’m happy to report that with a few minor modifications, the pattern works perfectly with woven fabric and I’m so excited to share the process with you. When planning the modifications, I focused on areas where ease would be an issue as we all know woven garments don’t have the same ease as knit garments. I used the Kielo Jumpsuit back closure and modified the sleeves into bigger and dramatic sleeves.
And I love the final result! I especially love the versatility of the piece, as I can think of several different ways to style this dress. If you’re interested in sewing along with me, grab a copy of the pattern and your fabric of choice and join me in making your own Kielo Dress or Jumpsuit!
I made modifications to the dress. So It’s better to watch the video. If there are any questions regarding the dress, please let me know. I will get back to you ASAP. Thanks.
