Dress with drawstring at the hips
Women's pattern, dress with drawstring at the hips
Here we have a little dress that is practical and comfortable for warm days.
Can be both casual and elegant depending on the fabrics chosen.
Essentielle is belted on the hips.
A long narrow button placket dresses up the front.
The back is open and edged with piping.
Through the back you get a glimpse and an under layer which can be made from a contrasting fabric.
The dress can be made as a sleeveless version without the button placket (the pattern includes this variation)
Essentielle looks prettiest when made from lightweight and floaty fabrics. Viscose would be the best choice.
This Essentielle is made from:
Fabrics (width 140cm)
Viscose, silk, cotton voile:
34 to 40: 170 cm, 42 to 46: 220cm
Bias binding (Finishing): 500cm
Cord or bias binding (Belt): 180cm
