Oh my! We’re loving this killer 2-piece dress, designed for drape-y fluid stable
knits or woven fabrics like lightweight double knit or silk jersey, rayon challis,
silk charmeuse, silk or poly crepe, or light or tropical weight wool.
Fitted top has armhole Princess seams, a gently scooped jewel neckline,
cut-on cap sleeves and a pointed edge peplum hem. Top closes with a
center back invisible zipper.
Skirt has a gently tapered fit-and-flare silhouette with curved princess seaming,
and features a center back invisible zipper closure, a classic waistband and a
pointed edge hem; skirt finishes just below the knee.
This fabulous 2-piece is the perfect way to refresh your wardrobe...wear the
pieces together-obviously!-for a stunning dressy outfit, but also try the top with
a slinky pencil skirt or skinny cigarette pants, andteam the skirt with a simple
tank-and-fitted-cardigan type twinset for a retro-glam look.
For the top in all sizes you’ll need around 1 5/8 yards/1.48m of fabric, plus
1x 24”/60cm invisible zipper and around 1/4 yard/ 24cm of fusible interfacing
for the neckline/armhole facings.
For the skirt in all sizes you’ll need around 1 3/4 yards/1.58m fabric, plus 1 x 10”
invisible zipper, and around 1/8 yard/12cm fusible interfacing for the waistband.
All fabric amounts are for 60”/150cm wide fabric.
