Stylish dress book . pattern B


Light cotton.

Great simple pattern.

Flattering neck line.

I made the smallest pattern as I wanted to avoid the square sack look. It's still a loose fit and I'm tall and not petite.

On the neck I cut the binding on the bias. Also rather than elastic on the sleeves I finished them with the same bias casing as the neck - which I like.

*note the pattern has an easily missed note in japanese (!) to add an extra 10cm to the middle of the sleeves. Essential to achieve the gather. I only added 8cm to minimise puff.
