Peony Dress (last copy available in print)
Note: this is the last copy of the Peony pattern. It is no longer available as a printed pattern.
This elegant bateau neck sheath dress is simple to sew, with added interest from a fully removable cummerbund style belt which can be made in a matching or contrasting fabric, closing with a single button in back. Version 1 has 3/4 length sleeves, a contrasting belt, and in seam pockets. Version 2 has short sleeves, a matching belt, and no pockets.
Crisp, medium weight fabrics, such as cotton poplin, light suiting, gabardine, cotton pique, silk twill, dupioni. Lightweight fabrics such as silk crepe, rayon, or any lining fabric can be used for the pockets.
Includes sizes 0 - 18 (33"- 46" bust sizes)
