Fitted Sheath Dress

Added Jul 16, 2015

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






This pattern cached my eyes when I opened the June issue, and when I saw Oksana’s waves and roses I just had to make it! I had this nice mandarin jersey, the color that I love, so it had to be the right choice for me. I thought maybe the dress would be to long, but I kept the length as in the pattern and think it is quite nice. Looking forward to use it on a jazz concert soon :)

Material Notes

Viscose jersey.




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Evening Wear, Rock
