True Bias Lodo Dress Pattern
The Lodo dress was designed to be sewn using medium weight knits such as ponte, light weight scuba, and cotton interlock with about 20% stretch. We highly recommend using stable knits such as these to keep the modern shape of the design. Avoid fabrics that are more slinky and really stretchy such as bamboo knits.
The neckline and armholes of the Lodo Dress are finished with a woven facing. Although this is unconventional on a knit garment, but the stable knit, combined with the fact that the neckline and armholes do not need to stretch for wear, make the woven facings possible. These also add more stability and structure to these areas and make them easier to sew with precision. These facings are a great way to use up fun quilting cottons or scraps, but be warned that you will see glimpses of this facing through the armhole so make sure that it coordinates with your main fabric
