Seasons change and wardrobes transition, but Dahlia remains the perfect dress all year long. Version 1 is perfect for cooler weather; the 3/4-sleeved raglan- style dress has a flat front skirt which sports a kick pleat at the back hem. Small gathers create gentle curves around an inset waist yoke. The neckline and sleeves are finished with bias tape for a clean look without the need for fussy facing pieces.

Version 2 is summery and sleeveless, featuring straps cleverly constructed from bias tape, and a six-panel skirt. This version of Dahlia is ideal for warmer months, for layering under sweaters, or for creating an understated cocktail dress.

You will need:

  • 3 yards 1/4" double-fold bias tape
  • 14" invisible zipper
  • See extra images for size/yardage requirements.
