THE DRESS

An infinitely versatile dress that will take you from daytime to partytime without a hitch. With sweet little box pleats to cinch the waist and kimono sleeves - short or 3/4 length - lending the bodice a relaxed yet feminine feel. Make like a lady with a knee length pleated skirt, or dare to bare and cut it short - but always keep things practical with side seam pockets!

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

Zeena will be happily made from a myriad of fabrics. Opt for soft, lightweight cottons for a no-fuss Summer dress, such as lawn, quilting cotton, broderie Anglaise, batiste, double gauze and cotton silk, or add a bit of drama with drapier fabrics such as viscose rayon, silk crêpe de chine, sandwashed silk or wool crêpe.
