Anneli's Talvikki Dress


For two months we had Anneli here working with us, helping with day-to-day tasks at our office. Sadly, now Anneli has already moved on to other things, but while she was here, she made herself this awesome Talvikki dress hack!


For her dress, she simply added a little length to the hem to achieve the knee-length, and omitted the uneven split hem and sewed the side seams all the way down, with an even hemline.


She also added simple in-seam side pockets, which are a handy detail on such a casual, oversized dress!


The result is super cute and relaxed, perfect for the Finnish cold winters! She used a blueberry-colored boiled wool from Eurokangas. The fabric had a little less stretch than required, so she also added an invisible zipper to the back.


Isn’t her Talvikki absolutely amazing?


Today and tomorrow (december 14th & 15th), the Talvikki pdf pattern is only 6 € (from 10), with this code:


Happy sewing!

    Tämä kaava on niin ihana, että ostin sen epähuomiossa kahdesti! Ensin verkkokaupastanne PDF:nä ja eilen vielä Eurokankaasta paperisena kankaan oston yhteydessä. Voi jee 😀 Kertonee jotain siitä kuinka paljon pidän tästä kaavasta!
