Dress No. 1 is an extremely wearable sleeveless dress with an A-line silhouette. The neck and armholes are finished with bias tape facing and top-stitched patch pockets add both flair and utility.
A separate instruction booklet walks you through the steps, from tracing and cutting the pattern pieces, to making and sewing bias tape. The pattern is printed on bond paper, with eight nested sizes.
