Shift Dress + Top from Wiksten

Sometimes simple styling can provide the most stylish looks. This versatile pattern is a capsule and wardrobe staple for easy-to-wear garments

The loose shift dress sewing pattern is both comfortable and elegant, the perfect wardrobe staple. Choose from three different lengths – cropped top, above-the-knee dress, and calf-length dress with side slits. The top has a plain back, while the dress has added fullness from back gathers. Patch pockets, waist tie, and three quarter length sleeve options give an adaptable look. The neck is finished with an easy-to-sew facing.

The oversized fit makes it possible to size down, but the bicep needs at least 3in ease for comfort.  Finished garment measurements are included in the pattern. Make in light to medium weight fabric with a good drape such as brushed cotton, gauze, voile, lawn, flannel, chambray, linen, silk crepe, charmeuse, silk noil and rayon. Available in sizes 0-22 (US).
