One pattern but two very different dresses, and infinite hack-ability!
The Lizz Dress from By Hand London is such a swishy dress pattern! It has a basic darted bodice with generous ease, a high waist, simple sleeves and the perfect scoop neckline. Throw in a fabulous full circle skirt with an inverted V-waist, multi-tier gathered skirt, neckline ruffle and waistline flounce – you’ve got all your favourite future dresses in one handy pattern!
This dress pattern is suitable for a wide range of lightweight wovens. For drape and lots of swing choose viscose challis, crepe, silk twill and tencel. Or for a softer dress go for naturals like enzyme washed linen and brushed cotton. Alternatively, crank it up a notch and try things like sheer organza and velvet! This is a multi-sized pattern in sizes 2-24 (UK) and 00-20 (US) in a B Cup and 16-38 (UK) and 12-34 (US) in D Cup.
