Anneli's Talvikki Dress

Anneli_Talvikki_3

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?

    Hi! I sewed a Talvikki-Sweater… but I wonder if someone else had the problem that it’s too tight and my head doesn’t fit through I need to add an invisible zipper now as here on the dress.

      Hi Flor! Oh no, what kind of fabric did you use? Or, does your interfacing have enough stretch? Note that the interfacing should have the same amount of stretch as the main fabric (30 %). If the interfacing is the issue, you could also try to take it off and make a new neckline facing with a more stretchy interfacing (or if the facing fabric is sturdy enough, you can omit the interfacing altogether). Maybe this would solve the issue? Let me know if this doesn’t help! – Laura

    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!
