For easy everyday dressing, for low-key
off duty chic, for those days when you have
to look pulled together but you need to be
comfy, choose this fabulous throw-on-&-go dress.
This style is perfect for fluid and drape-y woven
or knit fabrics like a stable double or single jersey,
heavy crepe, lightweight ponte, washed linen, crinkled
cotton gauze, sueded charmeuse or heavy rayon challis.
Semi-fitted, unlined, pull-on dress has a slightly slouchy
but controlled balloon silhouette, with side seam-underarm
panels for a trim bodice and superior fit. Dress features
Dior darts, a jewel neckline and below-elbow-length cut-on
sleeves with a slit; in-seam pockets & raglan shoulder pads
are optional. Dress finishes at mid calf with a narrow hem.
This effortlessly modern dress is one that looks gorgeous
with a flat or low heel, but it also works beautifully with a
chunky wedge of you prefer more height. Depending on
your fabric choices, this is a true year-round style, and it’s
super-simple to dress it up or down, you know how to do it!
Add some fab footwear, a soft oversized bag, your shades,
a billowy scarf & some low-key bijoux...then you’re easily
and beautifully dressed for your day & out of that door...
All sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26 will need around
2 3/4 yards or 252cm fabric; you’ll also need 1/4 yard/ 45cm
each of fusible interfacing and lining or similar for the pockets.
A pair of small (less than ½” or 1.25cm deep) raglan shoulder
pads are optional.
All fabric amounts are for 60" or 150cm wide fabric.
Interesting side panel that runs from hem up under the arm to sleeve hem.
I love the hidden pockets.
I made it up in a heavyish fabric to my regular length. Will make this again in different fabrics.
I finally found a pattern that is relaxed, yet sill lean enough to be flattering on my frame. I particularly found the Dior dart flattering.
I've made this in a floaty silk and am planning to make others.
The instructions were easy to follow.
Great dress that works for a wide range of place to wear.
Easy to sew and fit even for someone who is short under five foot like myself.
