This loose shift dress by Wiksten is both comfortable and elegant, the perfect wardrobe staple. Choose from three different lengths: a cropped top, above-the-knee dress, or calf-length dress with side slits. The top has a plain back, while the dress has added fullness from back gathers. Patch pockets, waist tie, and three quarter length sleeve options are included. Neck is finished with an easy-to-sew facing.
Fabric: Light to medium weight fabric with good drape, such as brushed cotton, gauze, voile, lawn, flannel, chambray, linen, silk crepe, charmeuse, silk noil, rayon.
Level: Advanced Beginner
Sizes: US Women's sizes 0-22. The oversized fit makes it possible to size down, but the bicep needs at least 3" ease for comfort. Finished garment measurements are included in the pattern.
