An effortless dress featuring double pleats at the bust, grown on sleeves and a panelled a-line skirt. Variations include both slash and v-neck options, plus midi and maxi skirt possibilities and a dramatic thigh high split. Super quick and simple to make, cut it short for the perfect festival dress, or make it worthy of the red carpet with a maxi skirt and thigh high split.

Multi-sized sewing pattern from B Cup UK 6-24 / US 2-20 and D Cup UK 16-34 / US 12-30.

Fabric & Fabric Requirements

Lightweight woven fabrics with a bit of body are ideal – rayon, silk crepe de Chine, silk charmeuse, chiffon, wool crepe etc. However, stable fabrics will work too, such as – quilting cotton, lawn, batiste, shirting, voile, Broderie Anglaise, silk habotai etc. Try stitching pennies into the hem to give your skirt more schwing!
