With Givre, we wanted to create a wardrobe builder, the type of pattern you sew over and over again because it is so convenient and comfortable. Fitted and pared-down, this is a classic piece that will never go out of fashion, with a contrasting yoke for some extra flair. Both the regular and maternity versions can be worn for many occasions, from casual to formal, thanks to the elegant knee length.
Givre is a knit staple with two versions: version A includes a dress and a 3/4 sleeves tee with a contrasting yoke, and version B is a scoop-neck sleeveless dress or fitted tank top.
Givre is very fitted, which is why it requires a jersey knit with at least 50% stretch (learn how to calculate stretch percentage) and containing elastane/spandex/lycra. Apart from these two requirements, you have some leeway with the thickness and fiber composition of your fabric, so you can achieve lots of different styles!
Givre is rated 2 out of 5 for its experience level. It is a very accessible pattern and a quick project, the only technical point being adding the neckline and armhole bands!
