This versatile dress pattern will quickly become your "go to" pattern. It's easy to create lots of different looks by varying the fabric, sleeve length, and skirt length. Make the above the knee dress length in a fancy fabric. Add some lace and you've got a special occasion dress. Choose a playful knit in a shorter length and pair with leggings to be ready for a birthday party! Or get ready for the outdoors in the shirt length paired with jeans!
The Tri-City Knit has a curved empire waist for a flattering look and Velcros® in the back. This PDF pattern includes 3 length variations (above the knee, mini, and long t-shirt), and 3 sleeve length variations (long, three-quarter, and short). Mix and match to create, create, create!

I had a 6" wide piece of grey metallic knit fabric. It was perfect for this cute little versatile number. I made it in the above knee dress with short sleeves and then used a black metallic trim and pared with matching black sparkly shoes. This is just a beautiful and quick pattern to put together. The instructions are very easy to follow. I will defiantly be using this a lot. Thanks to pixie faire for the best doll patterns anywhere!
the patterns are great very good instructions and easy to use.
I just sewed up my first of many Tri-City Knit dresses -- I love this pattern! Super clear instructions, easy to sew, fits great and looks adorable!
Love this pattern and have made it several times. Accurate pattern pieces and a great fit. Congrats on being a featured designer.
