Dahlia is a summer wrap dress sewing pattern featuring three sleeve options and two skirt lengths. This makes the pattern pretty versatile since it works for a variety of temperatures, occasions and styles! It can go from a cute airy summer day dress to elegant cocktail attire. Of course for the dresses, all the options for the sleeves and skirt lengths can be mixed and matched!
- cap sleeves
- 3/4 sleeves
- short high-low skirt
- short high-low skirt with added flounce
The bodice is lined and is shaped through several darts and release darts and is just like the skirt designed to fit and flatter the curves of your body. Due to the construction of the wrap dress sewing pattern the two skirt options can be sewn as standalone pieces as well.
The Dahlia Dress & Skirt is perfect for intermediate sewers and upwards.
