The Culver Dress from Pier & Palace

The Culver Dress is the second PDF pattern from the new indie sewing pattern company,
Pier & Palace

Culver is a sportswear inspired, modern take on the skater dress, which we think is a style that suits any body shape! The dress features stylish paneling and curved seam inserts, and is an incredibly versatile design. The Culver pattern  has been designed to be made in a fabric with some stretch, and aimed at sewers who some sewing experience and skill.

The Culver dress comes with two finishing options for the bodice including a curved neck and armhole facing or a fully lined bodice - the decision is yours. The concept behind the dress was to provide a real  workhorse of a garment.

Download the pattern for £10 on the Pier & Palace shop.
