We love this dress! With its vintage feel, full back, and center front insets, it has enough lovely details to satisfy the most fashion-obsessed sewers. Depending on your fabrication choices, it’s sweet enough for a summer party or sophisticated enough for the office. We also added extra chiffon details at the neck and sleeves.

Material Notes

cotton, chiffon, one button, zipper, interfacing

    YAY! Ever since I saw this in the catwalk photos a month ago I’ve been waiting for it to be released!!!

    I do love the vintage feel (though I’m bias) , It’s just enough detail without being flouncy, all the details: the back and clasp of the collar, the back, the layered cap sleeves, high waist! All the most flattering elements of a garment wrapped up in one dress! It’s pretty versatile too (thinking a shirt dress, or black stretch satin with electric lime piping/panels..hmmm)

    Thankyou thankyou and full congratulations for another great pattern! =D

    Beautiful! I love how many option there could be in this dress, it could be really floaty and pretty or have quite a futuristic kind of look. Very nice!

    This is going to be a hit, I’m sure! So many options to play with. I can’t wait to see member’s vintage spin on this. I bet you wheels are spinning on the setup for the photo styling. Channel your inner Kiera Knightley in one of her period movies. It will be amazing!

    I love love the tech. drawing but not too much with the real garment. I think with different fabric in weight, color and trim, the dress will be super gorgeous.

    This is really lovely! My to-do list is getting longer and longer and I just don’t have enough time to sew. I think I’ll put this on the upper part of the list : )

    Gorgeous, gorgeous gorgeous! Downloading despite the need to grade it so much! Though the sleeves will absolutely need to be changed for my larger figure as the cap sleeve is going to draw too much attention to all the wrong places :) P.S. It’s really nice to see your models smiling for a change!

    It definitely has a vintage feel to it. I like many of its details (the back, the sleeves, the chiffon) a lot. I’m not sure it’d be flattering for those with a curvier figure (like me) (and this is not meant as a negative critic, just thinking out loud) but I’ll keep my eyes peeled open for members’ creations based on this pattern.
