Buy the Strand Dress and Top sewing pattern from Halfmoon Atelier. This design was inspired by simple summer daydreaming, by vivid memories of long, hot summer days, by the romantic narrative of dancing in a field of wildflowers and by the second film in the designer’s all-time favourite trilogy, Before Sunset. The dress has a slight 70s vibe, but with clean modern lines. As a top, it can be worn loose or tucked into a skirt or high waist cutoffs. The dress features in-seam pockets and a drawstring, allowing you to easily adjust the fit and feel of the dress at any point in the day.
