Crossedsummerdress is a minimalistic, fitted dress in a modern midi length. Due its side slits, there is enough legroom despite the fitted silhouette and of course the length can get changed individually. With its double knitted straps, which are fixed on the shoulder, it is perfect to complete your wardrobe. Another nice detail is the crossing of the two middle straps, which the top is named after. With this dress you can do various styles for different occasions. Just put it on with a denim or leather jacket and sneakers and you have a perfect everyday Look, but with highheels you‘re ready for the next party.

All techniques are explained in the pattern.

Size guide


The dress should be knitted with a negative ease of 3 - 6 cm. The sizes are matching with a bust circumference of (80-84) 85-89 (90-94) 95-99 (100-104) 105-109 cm.
If your bust circumference measures 94cm, I would still recommend choosing size S though this size ‘only’ measures 87cm.
The pattern includes a little guide on how to mix sizes (for example bust: M, waist: S, hip: M). If you don’t find your measurements just in one size, don’t panic, there will be the opportunity to individualize the size combination.
