Description

A self draft pattern of a style I saw in a movie that I was watching. It is kind of retro to me but I think it is appropriate for work. This project took me a longtime to complete but I am happy with the result.

A shawl collar wrap dress that stops mid way the length giving room to walk . It has two flaps at the sides giving the impression as if it is an inside pockets. Two loops at the sides of the dress so I can wear the dress with a belt or without.

Material Notes

3yds linen blend. invisible zip
