The Essential Set
Hey everyone! I wanted to talk a little about The Essential Set.
(Essential Set with short sleeves, full circle peplum skirt paired with the rectangle dress length skirt)
What is it?
The Essential Set is your go-to basic pattern for a knit dress or tunic length peplum.
Why do you say it's my go-to?
Because this pattern consist of 3 different style skirts (full circle, 1/4 circle and rectangle).
What's the point of the 3 different skirts?
First off, while I love a good twirly skirt (full circle) that style takes up SOO MUCH FABRIC! Like, if you have a directional print, omg, you're eating up a lot of fabric.
So that's by I have the rectangle skirt, which isn't twirl like the full circle it has fullness made when it's gathered.
And then what about the 1/4 circle?
The 1/4 circle is not twirly at all but has the round look of a circle when laying flat but without the gathering at the waist.
Does it have any other options?
Yes totally, so you get the 6 skirts (3 dress length, 3 peplum length in the styles described above) and you also get a sleeveless bodice, short sleeves, 1/2 sleeves, long sleeves with cuffs and long sleeves without cuffs.
You see, this pattern has every option you need if you want to sew up a quick knit dress, whether its twirly or not.
