THE PATTERN

The only dress and skirt pattern you'll need to see you through summer weddings and office cocktails alike! Orsola is as easy to wear as she is to make; a chic sheath dress with an unexpected wrap detail in back, and no fiddly zippers or fastenings! Both dress variations feature a fully lined sleeveless bodice with a delicate bateau neckline, a deliciously elegant wrap back with a curved back neckline and back hem, and the option of a tulip scallop or a straight and simple front hem. Plus, Orsola is just as striking made as a separate wrap skirt. All variations have a faced hem to give the drape and neat finish Orsola deserves.

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

Drapey woven fabrics will bring out the best in Orsola. Opt for woven viscoses, tencel/cupro or linen for a grown up sundress that is as at home at work as it is at a garden party, or go all out with opulent silks such as sandwashed, crepe or velvet for the cocktail dress to end them all.
