    Tessuti Have Aced it Again

    Fantastic swing to this dress. Cut it to wear as dress or a tunic over Tessuti Robbie pants. Great detail on the pockets and a chic high cut wide neckline. Comes up on the large side, so would cut a size smaller than normal.

    Versatile and easy to follow pattern.
    I shortened it and made a very useful tunic for lockdown wear!!
