ADVENTUROUS BEGINNER PATTERN
UK SIZES 8-20
This very feminine, pretty dress is vintage in its' inspiration, a trend that doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. We love this style, it really is a flattering and also, modest dress that would suit pretty much any occasion depending on which fabric and accessories you choose for it. Our photos show the dress in a dress weight cotton, and a floaty tana lawn, either fabric suits this style well.
Light-to-mid-weight cotton, tana lawn, rayon, silk, satin, cotton blends, bamboo cottons and bamboo silk. Anything with a gentle drape.
50cm medium weight interfacing
22" concealed zip
