THE DRESS

Inspired by the dreamy glamour of the 70s, Alix will take you effortlessly from a hazy Summer festival to an elegant soirée in town. A high-waisted prairie dress with a V-neck yoke, inset waistband, tie back belt and a full skirt, pleated at centre front and back. And best of all, no zipper! With long, billowing raglan sleeves secured at the wrist with a delicate elasticated cuff and three skirt length options (& everything in between!) Alix can be just as at home worn with a pair of beat up old jeans as she is swooshing down the red carpet…!

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

Light to medium weight wovens will bring out the best in Alix - cotton lawn, voile, chambray, annel, double gauze, cotton silk, sandwashed silk, silk noil, wool crêpe, viscose crêpe, rayon and cupro.
