Staff Made — Puff and Pencil Crossover Dress
Sep 13 2023

Steph picked this cute dress pattern from Copenhagen based Puff and Pencil, an ideal style for a two-tone linen duo. Linen is a springtime dream to wear and with all of our popular TFS Exclusive Linens currently on sale at a massive 40% off it's the perfect time to snap up your favourite colours. Steph used Bone and Brick Organic Linens, check out the finished dress below.

Project Notes

The Crossover Dress — Puff and Pencil

This simple shift dress features a crossover front single tie on the inner layer and 3 outer ties that can be adjusted to create the perfect fit. Steph choose to make a size M and used our Bone Organic Linen colour for most of her dress, with the side panel and bows in Brick red, such a fun contrast! She used 1.25m of each linen colour, plus 2.5m of Bone Organic Linen Bias Binding. Using the excess Brick colour, she was able to make a separate long piece of binding to use for the ties and armhole binding. Size and fit were pretty perfect, and Steph mentioned she shifted the top tie on the right side into the armhole binding, after reading other maker's tips. Too easy! According to Puff and Pencil, you can also make this dress with sleeves, adding any of the Puff and Pencil sleeves which you can buy separately. We'll take one in every colour, thanks!
