Slightly fitted on the hips, the relaxed spirit and oversized volume of this dress will bring you both comfort and elegance. Its pleated sleeves, blouse-effect top and large turn-down collar strike a feminine note that can be reinforced when one shoulder is revealed. Keeping the collar straight will produce a more sensible look. The dropped waistband and billowy sleeves bring a relaxed edge to the model. The pattern for this dress will also allow you to make just the top half, which can be worn with jeans and sneakers for a more casual look.
