New dress sewing pattern that’s ideal for everyday
The Hughes Dress features princess seams, sleeves that gather at the cap, and also has a gorgeous scoop neckline. It buttons (or snaps) up the front and has an adjustable lace-up tie in the back. This pattern comes with options to cut it as a peplum top, above-the-knee length dress, or midi dress. The Hughes Dress is designed to be beautiful and flattering with design elements that make it comfortable and easy to wear.
It’s been designed for woven fabrics, and you’ll get a different look depending on the fabric you choose. For an elegant dressy look, select a drapey rayon or silk or pick a more sturdy fabric like a linen to give you a gorgeous everyday dress. It would look amazing in a double gauze cotton, shirting, rayon challis, or lightweight canvas – you can’t really go wrong with this dress.
