Skill level • Intermediate
This is a multi-size paper pattern, including sizes 6 – 18. Seam allowances are included in the pattern at 1.5cm, unless otherwise stated.
Suggested fabric • medium weight dress weight wovens, cotton twill, 6 - 9oz denims, linen and linen blends, corduroy, cotton chambray, tencel and tencel/linen. The more structured the fabric the more sculptural your top/dress will look. If you are using a heavier fabric you may want to use a lighter weight cloth for the under collar and front facings, to reduce bulk.
Trims needed • matching thread / 2 X 14-15mm buttons
