Make yourself these 3 easy pieces, perfect for
drape-y wovens like rayon challis, charmeuse, soft
linen, silk(y) twill, crepe or gauze, but also fab in
fluid knits like silk(y) jersey, rayon, or linen jersey.
Semi-fitted, pull-on styles have a gently shaped
silhouette, with center front & back seams. ‘V’
neckline and cut-on cap sleeves are finished with
self fabric binding. Choose your perfect length; a
midi-length dress, a mid-thigh tunic, or a lower-hiplength
top. All versions feature a deep pleat folded into the front
yoke for that essential bust shaping, plus a curved front
and straight back hemline.
Showcase those eye-catching prints or your
favorite solid colors in these fabulously breezy
pieces...wear the dress ‘as-is’ or belted; try the
tunic over a crisp cropped pant or a boyfriend
jean, and team the top with a slouchy wide leg
trouser or a long, lean midi skirt for effortless chic.

I love the style of this dress. It was an easy sew. I look forward to making another one. I may make it a size smaller, it seems to run a bit big.
Looks wonderful in silky prints and homespun too! Love the adjustability for size. This pattern adapts to casual, office casual, or dressy formal.
I just finished my muslin out of a really old stash fabric (very cheap and shiny) - and the pattern is great! I now have it cut out in a black sanded silk - what a wonderful LBD this will be! This fit is a bit loose, but not too much so! It was VERY easy to assemble and really looks great - right out of the envelope (no adjustments needed)! It DOES require a very drapey fabric though, or the shoulder pleat won't fall right.
This is a lovely top that looks great in fabrics with a lot of drape. I've made this up in a double gauze, a rayon and a linen look. The linen look fabric is a bit too structured for this pattern, but still attractive. I have more planned for spring in a cotton lawn and I may try it in a knit. This pattern is beautifully drafted and comes together easily. The instructions are well written. This is such an awesome top!
