The Varda Dress & Top is that perfect halfway point between a loose shift and a fitted sheath. The curves of the style lines are designed to follow the curves of your body, but with some ease built in for a comfortable fit. Choose either the dress or the top length, with one of three sleeve options, for six wonderful wardrobe staple garments.
All views feature an invisible zipper closure up the center back, French darts at the bust, contour darts along the back, and a topstitched faced neckline. The sleeveless option is finished with facings, or choose a short or elbow-length sleeve. The top hem lands at the hip and the dress finishes right above the knee, making it both evening and office appropriate.
The Varda Dress and Top pattern is sized from 0–18 and all sizes are included in the PDF.
This pattern's difficulty is rated at "two spools" which is perfect for an advanced beginner sewer!
Like with our other PDF-only patterns, the instructions are done in photographs instead of illustrations, for a helping hand in a sewalong style. We used a simple white background on the photos this time to save you ink when printing.
