Buy the Washington Dress, mixing the comfort of a knit bodice, with the fabric possibilities of a woven skirt. The Washington Dress gives you the freedom to play with colors and textures, for a look that’s uniquely you. Like all Cashmerette Patterns, the bodice comes in three cup sizes (C/D, E/F, and G/H), which makes fitting a cinch!
Style wise, the Washington Dress gives you endless design options. The knit bodice features a figure-enhancing scoop neckline and three sleeve variations: short, three-quarter, or full length. The A-line skirt cleverly combines woven fabric with a heavy knit yoke, eliminating the need for closures and allowing you to comfortably slip the dress over your head. For additional tummy control, the front yoke can be made from a woven fabric.
What we think: This dress is great for colour blocking and with three cup sizes, it will fit a range of busts. Plus you can use a range of fabric types for the yoke. It’s a versatile wardrobe staple that you will make time and time again.
Suggested fabric: Bodice: Light to midweight knit fabric such as jersey or ITY with at least 50% crosswise stretch. Yoke: Heavy knit fabric such as ponte or scuba. For more support, make from a mid to heavyweight woven. Skirt: Mid to heavyweight woven fabric, such as cotton, linen, canvas, or upholstery fabric.
Sizing: 12 to 28, in three cup sizes (C/D, E/F, G/H).
