Relaxed fit pull on dress. Easy to make, no fiddling around with zippers or the like. Have made this pattern a few times now in different fabrics, got it made in two hours flat on my last try!
A word of warning, this design tends to gather and bag around the stomach area slightly. I overcame this by adding an elasticated waist. Without a belt or banding this design has a gentle loose slightly oversized look. This kind of relaxed shape doesn’t suit my figure so I chose to make the pattern more form fitting by cinching it in at the waist. If you are quite tall you may find that a loose silhouette with no shaping to the waist can look really fashion forward. I’d wear it that way if I could, but I find it swamps my shape.
Another thing to note with this design is that you will very likely have to lengthen the pattern. There are lines on the pattern to show you where to add on your extra length. I felt this design really needed it.
