Holyoke Maxi dress & skirt from Cashmerette

Just released and something a bit different to the usual style of maxi dress – this one from Cashmerette oozes style!

Soak up the sun in the Holyoke maxi dress and skirt. Say goodbye to bust gaping thanks to the princess seams and faux placket, and built-in comfort courtesy of the back elasticated waistband, and also there is not a hint of bra because of the the carefully designed and placed straps.

View A is a sophisticated maxi dress featuring wide, bra-friendly straps and an angled neckline, while View B is a breezy full-length skirt. Both views have roomy pockets and an easy fit, thanks to an elasticised back waist, faux button placket, and princess seams. Whether made up in a floaty rayon challis or sumptuous linen, the Holyoke will keep you looking cool all summer long. The pattern comes in a wide range of sizes 12 – 28, with cup sizes C to H.

Choose light- to mid-weight woven fabric such as cotton lawn, linen, or rayon. Use drapey fabrics for a flowy look or firmer fabrics for a more structured result.
