So, I'm really into comfortable t-shirt style knit dresses. And this Style Arc Astoria Knit Dress is the perfect elevated t-shirt dress.

My fabric is Tie Dye Brushed Knit Poly Spandex from Fashion by the Yard. It's super soft. It washed and dried without pilling. That's always a great sign when dealing with knit fabrics.

And it cut and sewed really well. I used a ballpoint needle and my walking foot on my Baby Lock Aventura II.

I cut the size 14, and lengthened the dress by 3 inches. Lengthening lines are included on the pattern pieces.

Style Arc is known for having pretty scant instructions. But this is a pretty simple dress and they included a diagram showing how the pieces are joined.

I like how the waist ties are drafted. One side is drapey and the other is sewn into the side seam.

I plan to make this one again in a solid color.

  1. This is a great dress and it looks wonderful on your enviable curvy figure. I may be buying my first Style Arc pattern. Your blog comes to me in my email but today the pics were so huge I couldn't see the text. Anyway, nice post and very nice dress.

    1. That’s a good reason for you to have to click through! I have no clue what that’s about. My blog had been formatted the same way for over a decade. I’m not doing anything different.

      Thanks Connie!
