A timeless dress pattern which suits all sorts of shapes and sizes!
Seasons change and wardrobes transition, but Dahlia remains the perfect dress all year long!
Version 1 is perfect for cooler weather; the 3/4-sleeved raglan- style dress has a flat front skirt which sports a kick pleat at the back hem. Small gathers create gentle curves around an inset waist yoke. The neckline and sleeves are finished with bias tape for a clean look without the need for fussy facing pieces.
Version 2 is summery and sleeveless, featuring straps cleverly constructed from bias tape, and a six-panel skirt. This version of Dahlia is ideal for warmer months, for layering under sweaters, or for creating an understated cocktail dress.
All purpose thread, three yards of 6mm (1/4") double fold bias tape (if you want to make your own click here to view our bias tape makers!), 35.5cm (14") invisible zipper, hand-sewing needle.
All versions: Voile, rayon challis, batiste, cotton lawn, silk crepe, chambray, for version 1 you can also use wool crepe or wool suiting.
