Sew Me Something - Kate Dress

Description

Kate is a very versatile shift dress. It has bust darts and a slightly curved side seam to give shape. Bias binding neatens the neckline, pockets and the sleeves on Versions 1 and 3.

Version 1 has a plain, scooped neckline and set in sleeves with a slight gather at the sleeve head.

Version 2 has a scooped neckline with a small amount of gather at the centre. The sleeves are set in as Version 1 but are straight and end above the elbow.

Version 3 has the same scooped and gathered neckline as Version 2 but the sleeves are ¾ length bishop sleeves that end in a gathered binding.

The pockets are curved patch pockets with a little bit of gather to add some interest and finished off with a bound top edge. The dress finishes about 10cm above the knee.

SKILL LEVEL - Advanced Beginner 

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS - Light to medium weight fabrics such as Printed Craft Cotton, Linen, Poplin, Denim, Crepe or Satin Crepe.
