This relaxed-fit dress pattern features a front and back yoke, V-notch neckline, and back button closure. Both views have easy-to-sew welt pockets and cuffed, three-quarter-length sleeves. The yoke on this pattern can highlight a favorite print or fabric, and the hem lengths offer a variety of design options. The dress can be made in two lengths. View A offers a traditional length that ends just below the knee, while View B is an elegant mid-calf midi length.

Suggested Fabrics

This pattern works best with light- to medium-weight woven fabrics like quilting cotton, broadcloth, lawn, poplin, shirting, voile, linen, fine-wale corduroy, and silk shantung.
