• easy knit fabric dress pattern

Correa Dress


The correa is a common flowering shrub found across Australia. The bell-shaped flowers are such a welcome delight when many other plants have finished flowering for the year. Honeyeaters come and visit to drink from those flowers, hanging upside-down and darting all around.

The A line shape of this easy knit fabric dress pattern is so much like those beautiful little flowers, and the batwing raglan sleeves create wing-like movement. Designed to fly out from your sewing table and onto your favourite small person in no time at all the Correa Dress is a joy for you to make and for her to wear.
