Buy the Alena Dress sewing pattern from Fibre Mood. At first glance, Alena looks like a simple, casual dress with a round neckline and short sleeves. Spin her ’round though and you’ll discover an elegantly designed back opening. At the back, the elastic brings in the waist of the dress a striking accent. Alena is designed with a subtle, fitted cut. She will look gorgeous in whatever length you choose.
