Meet the Travertine Knit Set, Our Crew Pattern for June!

2024 Crew Flay Lays (5)

Say hello to the Travertine Knit Set, the sixth pattern in our "Stone Collection" for Crew 2024! A three-in-one pattern, Travertine is an incredible wardrobe builder with a tank, dress, and skirt option. It's a fast sew designed for comfortable knits in an on-trend silhouette, perfect for mixing with other pieces in the Stone Collection or wearing on its own. You can get Travertine in sizes 0-32 by joining Crew – our monthly sewing and pattern membership – starting at just $12 USD a month!

The Design

Travertine features a highcut neck and narrow fit through the shoulders, similar to the almost-but-not-quite-a-racerback proportions of our Mica Dress (designing this collection, we were excited about exploring themes and ideas in multiple iterations!) Finished with a wide knit binding and close fitting through the body, it's the perfect layering and mixing piece.

With Travertine, we wanted to give you options. As a tank, it's the goes-with-everything basic you'll want to make in a dozen colours. As a midi-length dress with a back slit, it's a ridiculously comfy option for hot days or a layering opportunity with cardigans and jackets. As a skirt, it's a close-fitting bottom with a pencil silhouette we think will look great paired with all the tops we've released so far, or sewn as a matching (or contrasting!) set with the tank. Plus, we've included instructions for sewing a simple shelf bra into the tank and dress if you'd like to skip your regular bra. All in all, Travertine is many patterns in one, and we're so excited about all the ways you can sew and wear it!

Travertine Design Story

Suggested Fabrics for Travertine

Since Travertine has negative ease, we suggest light and midweight stretch knits with excellent recovery and at least 50% crosswise stretch. Look for knits with a bit of spandex for stretch, like cotton spandex. I especially love this pattern in a soft rib weave, and we've sourced a lovely new range perfect for this pattern at Core Fabrics.

For the skirt, you can use heavier knits like Ponte or even stretch fleece!
