This dress is a lovely summer shift with flattering front princess seams, a large pocket and a choice of waist ties, front panel and hem length.

View A finishes below the knee with waist ties, shaped shirt style hem and v-back neck. Ideal fabrics are soft, lightweight and drape well. The gathering at the waist is best suited to finer fabrics to reduce bulk.

View B finishes above the knee with button front fastening on the centre front panel, loose A-line shape, straight hem and v-back neck. Fabrics can be selected according to your preferred silhouette. Soft lightweight fabrics for a nice floaty feel or fabrics with more body to emphasise the shape of the dress.

FABRIC RECOMMENDATIONS - Silk, double gauze, chambray, linen, cotton lawn, rayon.

VIEW A - 2 METRES OF 150CM WIDE FARIC (minimum fabric requirement with no obvious pattern or nap)

VIEW B - 1.7 METRES OF 150CM WIDE FABRIC (minimum fabric requirement with no obvious pattern or nap)

Interfacing - Approximately 0.5 metres of lightweight fusible

5 x 1.5cm diameter buttons (view B only).

This is rated as advanced beginner as the construction is straight forward with some very accurate sewing required on the centre front panel.
