Tilly and the Buttons STRETCH! Freya Sweater/Dress

This is a really flattering dress with many options. We'll be making the standard Freya at either sweater or dress length (student's choice) in the first session. This version has a mock turtleneck. In the second session, the student can choose to make a Freya with a cowl or full turtleneck out of a different fabric or a different length. You'll be surprised by how flattering this basic A-Line sweater or dress can be. Fabric choices are varied: Jersey, Sweater knit, ponte or doubleknits are all good choices for Freya. Designed for bust sizes 30-44".
