The Hallon Dress is such a happy, swingy dress! I hope wearing it makes you feel like a summer day.
View A has a very relaxed fit, and a lovely ruffled hem. The back sits low and loose, so the shape of your gorgeous back can be seen.
You will learn how to:
✿ Make and use bias binding
✿ Gather fabric
✿ Sew darts
✿ Sew french seams
View B has a straighter fit, with no back gathers so it sits closer to your back. It also has side seam slits.
In addition to what you will learn in View A, you will also learn:
✿ French seam side slits
You can of course mix it up and put the hem ruffle on View B, and vice versa, not use the hem ruffle on View A and instead add side seam slits.
This dress will look great in a lightweight to medium woven fabric, such as silk crepe or charmeuse, rayon twill or challis, tencel, or modal. View A would also look so cute and billowy in a crisp cotton or
linen. View B begs to be made in a slinky, drapey fabric.
SEWING LEVEL: Confident beginner
SIZING: 0-16 (Bust 30”-51”)
