A timeless style that can feel like an old fashioned prairie dress or a simple contemporary dress. It is one of my favorite everyday dresses and as you go through the options you will see that you can build it to have very different looks. The standard dress has a bodice that falls just above the waist on most women. There are small tucks in the front and back to add interest and shape. Sleeves have some gathers at the shoulder for ease of movement and can come short with cuffs, 3/4 length or long. The skirt is long and there are several different options, from a full skirt to an A-Line without any gathers. Without a collar, this dress looks like a regular shirt-dress. Add a round or pointed collar for a completely different look. Approximate finished length from top of shoulder to hem is 50". It is available in any of our fabrics.
This dress is also popular as a costume dress when one is looking for an old fashioned prairie, Little House, frontier style of dress. Our pattern is not in any way historically correct but if you are looking for a costume in a modest design, this one might be just right. Be sure to order the full gathered skirt and either short cuffed or long sleeves.
