This sweet and flattering dress features a cut-out scoop neckline, an above-the-knee hemline, pockets, and elastic in the back for an easy, comfortable fit. No zippers or closures are needed, making it a wonderful project for the intermediate sewist! The class will include the basic scoop neckline, elastic back and the standard length.
Once you have made one then you can venture into other options.... without sleeves, long sleeves with a basic scoop neckline, as a tunic, or with a longer skirt to achieve a large number of different looks. You’ll be thrilled with all of the variations you can create with this fantastic pattern!
The pattern has recently been resized - The original pattern was sized for bust measurements 32-44" and hip measurements 35-46". The new version of the pattern will be sized to fit bust measurements 32-59" [83-145 cm] and hip measurements 34-59" [88-150 cm], effectively more than doubling the original range of the pattern. Waist is not a significant size chart measurement for this pattern as it is an empire-waisted style and is extra roomy through the waist. Find out more here and see the new size charts.....
