Elsie is the ultimate party girl! Borne out of a desire for a graceful, grown-up party dress, Elsie is perfect for warm, balmy evenings in the sun, as well as those festive, wintery soirees.
With a gently curved v-neckline, flattering princess seams, dramatic pleats and a nod to our favourite fashions of the ’50s, the Elsie Dress is elegant, sophisticated and guaranteed to catch an eye. We can definitely see Betty Draper in this!
Designed to have that immaculate finish inside as well as out, Elsie features a fully lined and faced bodice, neat invisible zip and delicate hand finishing. The pattern also comes with a quick-to-sew skirt version too.
Includes sizes 8-20 (bust sizes 33" - 45" / bust sizes 84cm - 114cm).
Stretch cotton, brocade, jacquard, cotton poplin, silk dupion, taffeta. Ideally you want to choose something with a bit of body so that the skirt can hold the pleats.
