Pattern #2031 Blake Dress
So many possibilities with this dress. Make the most of the new season's look with a straight neckline or choose the high neck scoop front and deep scoop back.
This dress has gathered tiers that you can sew as a knee length or a midi dropping to a maxi at the back with a deep hem facing. The shoulders are secured with petal shaped ties and the bodice is semi fitted with bust darts. The fullness starts from a low empire line/high waist for a flattering fit. Both views are fully self fabric lined.
View A has a high front neck and a deep scoop at the back with 2 tiers and has pockets. View B has 3 gathered tiers, a straight front and back neckline and a button and loop closure. Both views can be sewn without the lower tier for an above knee length option. The bodices are interchangeable with the skirts.
