THE DRESS

An incredibly versatile party dress featuring a fitted sleeveless V-neck bodice with angled darts and armholes. Variation 1 transforms the somewhat edgy bodice into a vintage lover’s dream, boasting a wide sailor collar and full skirt with multiple panels and godets, while Variation 2 opts for a sleeker, more modern silhouette - angled darts mirror those on the bodice, and a sexy centre front split make this sheath dress anything but plain.

Multi-sized sewing pattern from UK 6 / US 2 up to UK 20 / US 16

Most light-medium weight wovens will be suitable for Sophia. Cotton lawn, quilting cotton, poplin, Broderie Anglaise, batiste, silk habotai, silk crêpe, taffeta, silk satin, rayon, wool tweed, wool crêpe etc. Lightweight or drapey fabrics will benefit from a lightweight fusible interfacing at the collar of Variation 1. Opt for a breathable cotton lawn for the bodice lining.
