Bella Loves Patterns Flor Dress and Top
£11.50 – £18.50
Buy the Flor Dress and Top sewing pattern from Bella Loves Patterns. Flor is a romantic wrap dress and cropped top that is perfect to wear during the warm seasons or layered over a turtleneck in winter. The pattern features statement ruffles inserted into the shoulders, princess seams and wide waist ties.
Flor comes in two styles: a high waisted cropped top and a midi-length dress with a gathered waist and tiered skirt. Both styles are finished with bias binding around the neck and armholes. The dress and top have a high wrap V-shaped neckline.
With no zipper or lining or complex closures, Flor is surprisingly simple to make. The dress option also has in-seam pockets.
