GRAINLINE STUDIO • Farrow Dress
From Grainline Studio, The Farrow Dress has an elegant A-line shape with flattering diagonal seaming at the front with concealed in-seam pockets, and a jewel neckline.
This pattern comes with the option for sleeveless, View A, perfect for balmy summer days of summer; whilst View B features bracelet sleeves and is perfect for cooler temperatures in the spring and autumn. Layer it with tights and a cardigan for the snowy days of winter. Dress it up with heels or dress it down with boots.
Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, setting sleeves, inseam pockets, and applying facings. If you would like to line your Farrow Dress, it's worth taking a look at the comprehensive instructions on the Grainline Studio blog.
