Buy the Frankie Shift Dress and Top sewing pattern from Sew to Grow. The sweeping silhouette of the Frankie Shift pairs perfectly with a soft drapey fabric like rayon, or can look more casual and carefree in a linen. This design features clever side panel pockets and an optional tie. Choose between the flutter sleeves, sewn into the seam, or sleeveless for a look that is unique to your own individual style.
