Buy the Varda Dress and Top sewing pattern from Christine Haynes. The Varda Dress and Top have the style lines of a fitted sheath, but with some ease built in for a looser fit. Choose either the dress or the top length, with one of three sleeve options, for six elegant garments. All views feature an invisible zipper closure up the centre back, French darts at the bust, contour darts along the back, and a topstitched faced neckline. The sleeveless option is finished with a topstitched facing, or choose a short or elbow-length sleeve. The top hem lands at the hip, and the dress finishes right above the knee, making it both evening and office appropriate.
