Thérèse - a tencel tee shirt dress knitting pattern

You can make incredible, high end garments. Therese is pure luxury knit with Tencel, or your favorite budget friendly alternative. Afterall, it's your beautiful stitches that make this dress so special.

The Therese Dress is reversible, with the same number of stitches in the front and back. She can be shortened into a tunic or tee length by working fewer rows between increases along the side seam, and/or by working fewer straight rows before and after the shaping.

Construction

Therese is knit from the top down, seamlessly, with a saddle shoulder construction.
