I have some pretty polyester lycra in a beautiful shade of a light teal that I would like to sew up a long sleeve knit dress that goes with knee high boots. The fabric is a lightweight fabric so I thought about lining it. I think it could be rather clingy so nothing tight unless I could lose 20 pounds! Any suggestions?

This is one of my favorite patterns. I made the crossover, long sleeved version and I wear it with boots. It is such a forgiving dress that I doubt you would have to line much, maybe just the top. Sadly, it's out of print but if you have it or can find a copy, it's great.

My favourite dress to wear with boots is Vogue 1194. Here's my version of it in soft lightweight rayon/lycra jersey. It's a great dress and very comfortable. I wear boots all the time in winter and love wearing knit dresses too - so easy, just pull it on and you're ready to go. I've got a couple of other patterns that would be great and at some point I will make them up - Vogue 8379, Vogue 8489 and the now out of print HotPatterns 1062.
