*This is the print-at-home version in Arch E, A4 & letter 
sized paper; A0 for copyshop coming soon!

If you want the classic paper pattern version; click here*

Make yourself these 3 easy pieces, perfect for

drape-y wovens like rayon challis, charmeuse, soft
linen, silk(y) twill, crepe or gauze, but also fab in
fluid knits like silk(y) jersey, rayon, or linen jersey.

Semi-fitted, pull-on styles have a gently shaped
silhouette, with center front & back seams. ‘V’
neckline and cut-on cap sleeves are finished with
self fabric binding. Choose your perfect length; a
midi-length dress, a mid-thigh tunic, or a lower-hiplength
top. All versions feature a deep pleat folded into the front
yoke for that essential
bust shaping, plus a curved front
and straight back hemline.

Showcase those eye-catching prints or your
favorite solid colors in these fabulously breezy
pieces...wear the dress ‘as-is’ or belted; try the
tunic over a crisp cropped pant or a boyfriend
jean, and team the top with a slouchy wide leg
trouser or a long, lean midi skirt for effortless chic.

    Not my Favorite

    Posted by Evelyn Laurenzi on 25th Aug 2020

    I love HotPatterns but this dress was not my favorite. I know it’s meant to be just a straight shift but I found the top section to give me a shapeless appearance. I make lots of HotPatterns pieces and love most of them, but this one is just not a favorite.

    Easy, fast and fun to wear

    Posted by Nothy Lane on 1st May 2020

    I made this dress as a nightie for through Covid PJ Indoor Sewing Event. This dress is simple and flattering. You want to let the fabric shine w this pattern, so buy better fabric. The dress is cut nicely so that it skims the body in a flattering way. I added waist dart, long and thin darts, and I like the effect.
