Charlotte Hall, ...
This is a dress that I made using a pattern that I originally drafted years ago and have been working on perfecting ever since. This version of the pattern has a split cowl and is sleeveless. The neckline and armholes are finished with bias tape and topstitching.
It is made from a yellow pique knit. I added fabric covered buttons and a matching belt to go with it.
I have been working to make the pattern available in multiple sizes, and I’m happy to say that the pattern is available for sale in sizes XXS-L, with sizes XL-5X coming soon. The pattern comes with three different views, allowing you to make a dress or a shirt with different neckline and sleeve options. This pattern allows for endless variations and remake-ability. I wanted it to be a pattern that can take people through all of the seasons.
