Buy the Sylvie Dress sewing pattern from Christine Haynes. The Sylvie Dress is a fit-and-flare dress with feminine vintage detailing. The bodice is unlined and sleeveless, with three small darts under the bust, back waist darts, a bias-bound neckline and armholes, and an invisible zipper up the centre back seam. The wide lined waistband can be cut on-grain or on the bias. The skirt is an unlined gathered dirndl that can be cut on-grain or crossgrain to utilise fabric borders, and it is topped with optional large patch pockets.
