Sew Liberated Stasia Dress & Top (Beginner)

(2 reviews) Write a Review


A knit dress that feels like wearing secret pajamas. Optional pockets. Multiple sleeve and length options. A close-fitting tee perfect for layering. A pattern-hacker's canvas. Tons of tips for sewing with knits. And a lot of love - wrapped up into one amazing pattern! Get your sewing machine humming, and find let your inner beauty shine through to the outside with the Stasia Dress.

The Stasia's secret is a v-front bodice, which highlights the smallest part of the waist and provides plenty of room below for beautiful bellies (I call mine the empty baby house!) Wearing your Stasia Dress, your belly and hips will be free to hike, dance, and do all sorts of wonderful activities while still feeling like a million bucks. 

Stasia Materials List

All yardage based on 58” wide knit fabric.  Fabric needs at least 40% stretch and quick recovery.  For a flowy, soft dress or shirt, choose a fabric with rayon or bamboo content, in addition to spandex.  For a more structured dress (and if you choose to add pockets) look for a mid-to-heavy weight fabric with at least 40% stretch and good recovery such as French terry, cotton jersey or ponte.

    Beautifully packaged, quickly delivered. and put together with a little booklet of tips and advice before starting your masterpiece...which I so appreciated. I am still preparing to see my first dress in 30 years but feel enthusiastic and motivated with the help and clear instruction of this pattern.
