The Lito dress is inspired by a classic ringer tee, with a little bit of a retro vibe. It has a relaxed fit, and it’s as simple to sew as it is to wear.

This dress sews best in knits with good recovery, like jersey, merino, rib knit, and French terry. The neck and sleeve bands are perfect for a pop of contrasting ribbing.
