Fabulously flattering dress, perfect for parties,
special occasions or just a warm Summer
day. Dress is designed for light or medium
weight soft or crisp cotton or silk fabrics with
optional applied trim, or border prints, all-over
eyelet or (our favorite option!)Sari fabrics.

panel, with an invisible center back zipper
and optional hook & eye closure. Front
bodice features under-bust gathers; back
bodice is darted for a smooth fit. Full,
gathered and lined dirndl skirt has side seam
pockets and optional trim at the hemline.
Wear this totally G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S Dress
in a Sari-silk with sky-scraper strappy heels
and a tiny beaded clutch for a fab party look;
make it in a crisp border-print cotton and
team it with flat beaded sandals for an
effortless Summer outfit; or try it in a scallop
edged eyelet with a low kitten heel for an
unforgettable dressy day-dress.
For all sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26
you’ll need 2 3/4 yards/2.52m fabric & lining...
for the dress fabric, we recommend using a
standard sari, which is around 48” or 122cm wide.
If you choose a border print/embroidered fabric,
you’ll need the same amount of fabric.
If you plan to use a 60” or 150cm wide fabric,
you’ll need around 2 ½ yards or 2.30m of fabric.
If you are using an applied trim, you’ll need a trim at
least 2” or 5cm deep (deeper is better...layer up narrower
trims if you have to!) measuring around 23/4 yards/2.52m.
You’ll also need 1 X 12”/30cm invisible zipper;
a hook and eye closure is optional.
All lining & interfacing amounts are for 60”/150cm wide
lining & interfacing.
