New York, New Yo...
This dress pattern offers versatility and charm: You’ll be all set to saunter into summer with side pockets, cap sleeves and a belted high waist. Ours is made from printed silk charmeuse. Side zip.
Sewing Tip: Instead of folding the top dress tucks inwards (as instructions indicate) try folding and sewing them outwards, or, for more of a variation, turn the tucks into 2 tucks on either side.
During the photo shoot we saw this stunning yellow vintage BMW parked on a quiet Brooklyn side street and had to place out model Anna in front of it. I just helped the colors in the dress to pop!
Light weight fabrics recommended (silk, lightweight wool, cotton lawn).
Sizes 34 – 46: Self: 2 1/2 yards (2m 20cm). Lining: 2 1/2 yards (2m 20cm)
1 12" invisible zipper
2 hooks & eyes for belt closure
