The Alice Dress pattern

Choosing jersey fabrics:

Alice is designed for light to medium weight knits, which gives you almost endless options to play with! Give these key jersey types a try.

  • Cotton jersey: One of the most popular jersey fabrics thanks to its soft, fluid drape, available in a variety of weights to suit your project.
  • Ponte de roma: A thicker, more stable knit that’s ideal for jersey-sewing newbies.
  • Cotton Lycra: A blend of cotton and Spandex or Lycra with excellent stretch and recovery.

We like the range available over at Girl Charlee.
