March Dress and Top from Helen’s Closet

Make fun retro-style dresses and tops with this new pattern

The March Dress and Top from Helen’s Closet is a fun retro-style pattern with voluminous sleeves in two lengths. The gather skirt or peplum top is so comfortable, easy to style, and fun to wear! The interfaced front and back bodice panels add visual interest and a great place for embellishment like embroidery. Finish with a necktie that you can tie in the front or leave hanging open. Or make with a clean neckline. The dress view features extra deep inseam pockets that are secured into the waistband seam.

Choose from light to medium-weight woven fabrics with no stretch. Linen, cotton (lawn, poplin, voile, seersucker, shirting, double gauze), Tencel twill, and rayon/viscose challis or poplin will work well. Structured fabric like crisp cotton lawn will add a dramatic volume. While drapier fabrics like rayon challis will have more fluid movement.
