The Shawl Collar Dress

The Makers Atelier

Add to Wishlist
Add to Wishlist

A flattering, fluid dress with shawl collar and folded, pleat front detail. The grown on sleeves with underarm inserts skim the body and allow freedom of movement. This pull-on style has no zips or fastenings but handy in-seam pockets. Due to the minimal seam allowance at the underarm, the fabric edges need to be finished with an overlock stitch. This is to prevent fraying and avoid bulk.

Fabric Suggestions; Suitable for most dress weight fabrics. Select viscose blends for drape and pure wool, cotton or linen for a more structured look.
The navy dress shown is made from our Poly/viscose Crepe available here. The pale mint version is a viscose/linen mix.

Trims suggestions;
The hem and cuff are finished using bias binding and hemming. This requires 3m / 3yd of 12mm binding.

Sizes; 4-22
