Jetting off on winter holidays? Sewing for spring break? Bring a convertible dress with you and solve both travel and destination wardrobe options!
The Christine Jonson Multi-Tie dress is perfect for winter holidays! You’re leaving in the freezing cold and jetting off to somewhere warm. The Multi-Tie dress can be worn as a long-sleeved funnel neck dress over leggings and under a cozy swing cardigan. When you get to your warm weather destination, slip off the sweater, slide out of the leggings in the baggage claim restroom (no kidding! We’ve done this!) and slip your arms out of the dress to create a halter dress. Slide on some sunglasses and the moment you exit the airport, you’re already on vacation!
The same dress can pull triple duty on vacation, with the on-the-plane and travel version, worn with a Swing Jacket in a sweater knit, and then as a swim cover up and resort-dinner dress while on vacation. Plus, with just TWO pattern pieces, the dress sews up in under 30 minutes. You CAN sew this dress, right before you leave! The recommended fabrics - 4-way stretch with snappy recovery - means you can roll it up and shove it in your beach bag and still shake it out and wear it to dinner later.
