While the Afternoon Blouse has been designed to be tucked into high-waisted skirts and pants for a vintage look, it also works perfectly worn loose with jeans and sandals for a modern look. The Shift Dress has been designed with pockets for hiding all of your treasures and can be worn as is or with a belt for extra shape.
An expansion of the popular Afternoon Blouse, this new version includes additional sizes in the upper range as well as a comfortable and stylish Shift Dress with your choice of a back box pleat or light gathering for additional shape as well as the all-important side seam pockets.
For the beginner, the flowing design will help to build sewing confidence with its choice of two decorative necklines and 1940s-inspired grown-on sleeves. For the advanced sewer, this gorgeous pattern can be made in one afternoon using silk or rayon – a luxurious, quick and satisfying make.
An easy summer blouse and dress designed with beginners and advanced sewers in mind.
