Description

I am Diana, a playsuit or a pleated dress. You can make me with short sleeves or sleeveless. In each of my versions, I feature a shawl collar and a double-breasted closure that finishes at the small hips. The narrow bodice panels lengthen my silhouette. In the playsuit version, I have in-seam pockets. In the dress version, my pleated skirt starts from the cutout at the small hips. Depending on the fabrics used I can follow you on relaxed outings or dressed up parties.

Level: Simple

Sizes: 36 to 46

PAPER PATTERN

All seam allowances are included in the pattern.

The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.

The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. If you prefer a ready-to-cut pattern, try the pdf version as pieces do not overlap with each other.
