Sizes: EUR 32 – 50 (US 0 – 18 / UK 4 – 22)
The pattern includes two variations: A jersey dress with a pleated skirt, and a simple bodysuit
Both variations have long sleeves and a deep V-neck
The dress is knee-length
There’s a practical snap button closure at the crotch of the bodysuit
Choose a light- to medium-weight jersey, with approximately 50 % stretch. For the bodysuit, make sure to pick something firm with a good recovery and preferably with some elastin (lycra / spandex). If you want, you can use a heavier jersey for the dress bodice and sleeves, and a lighter jersey for the skirt. This way the skirt won’t bee too heavy. The dress sample is made of a drapey rayon jersey; the bodysuit was sewn up in a polyester-blend jersey (Eurokangas).
