Dahlia Dress (last copy in print)
Note: this is the last copy of the Dahlia pattern. It is no longer available as a printed pattern.
Seasons change and wardrobes transition, but Dahlia remains the perfect dress all year long.
Version 1 is perfect for cooler weather; the 3/4-sleeved raglan- style dress has a flat front skirt which sports a kick pleat at the back hem. Small gathers create gentle curves around an inset waist yoke. The neckline and sleeves are finished with bias tape for a clean look without the need for fussy facing pieces.
Version 2 is summery and sleeveless, featuring straps cleverly constructed from bias tape, and a six-panel skirt. This version of Dahlia is ideal for warmer months, for layering under sweaters, or for creating an understated cocktail dress.
All versions: voile, rayon challis, batiste, cotton lawn, silk crepe, chambray.
Version 1: wool crepe, wool suiting.
Includes sizes 0 - 26 (bust sizes 33" - 54").
