Today was released the Trevi Top & Dress, the new pattern by Hey June Handmade. I am not going to mention again how much I love Adrianna’s patterns (oops! Just did it!) because you already know and this new pattern is no exception. 😉
The Trevi Top & Dress is a trapeze top or dress for woven fabrics and love how versatile and comfortable it is. Depending on the fabric and accessories you use you can achieve different looks and it also looks great paired with a cardigan.
This pattern is available from size 2 to 22 and I made the dress version in size 2. I didn’t used it, but the pattern also includes a separate front piece with a darted full bust adjustment for cup sizes above C.
The recommended fabrics for this pattern are the lightweight with drape and I used a lightweight viscose crepe that I really like but it was not the easiest fabric to work with, probably because it is not the kind of fabric I usually work with.
The top/dress closes at the back with buttons, a feature that I really like! I like the fit of my dress but next time I will take a few centimetres, because I am not tall other than that, I will not make any changes and I am sure I will wear his dress a lot. How could I not? It’s perfect for hot Summer days in Portugal (I’m already dreaming with those days!).
I probably didn’t have to say this, but just like all the other patterns I’ve tested or used from Hay June, the instructions are clear and helpful and the pattern pieces all match perfectly.
Hope you are having a lovely week. 😊
