Sizes XS - 3XL
Our sewing pattern features three views, each with a different sleeve option: sleeveless, short sleeve, and elbow-length sleeve. The short sleeve is bell-shaped, while the longer sleeve has elastic at the cuff and falls to below the elbow. All three dresses feature princess seams, side darts with cleverly hidden pockets in the dart (optional), and an interior elastic belt to add additional shaping to the front as desired. The back is gathered to a pointed yoke and the front yoke is a smooth crew-neck shape. This dress is a perfect warm-weather outfit for comfort and style.
Suggested fabrics: Light to mid-weight woven cotton fabrics, such as lawn, ikat, seersucker, chambray, poplin, double-gauze, batik, brocade, muslin, poplin, eyelet, and batiste. Light to mid-weight linen, rayon, and silk are good choices as well. Fabrics with bold or subtle prints/designs are typical - Hawaiian prints, block prints, florals, abstract.
