For evening wear, gem tones this season are a good bet. Made from amethyst and sapphire charmeuse, this comfortable, waist cinching dress is the perfect look for a cocktail party or a night time event. You could also turn this dress into a day look by using brighter or printed fabrics.
Based off of the Jocelyn mini-dress pattern we lengthened the body of the skirt to hit mid-thigh so you can wear it with or without stockings, and used crepe backed satin to give it a more sophisticated look. Back zip, front and back darts. Belt included in the pattern.
Use silks or light-weight cotton. Self: 2 yards (1m 50cm) Lining: 1 yard (65cm)
