Lois dress- Perfect for summer

The Lois dress is a simple v neck dress with a slight empire shape and a midi length finish.

The pattern instructions are comprehensive and well thought through for a beginner. There are lots of accompanying photos to help you along each step. The only challenge I came across was when inserting the zip. The side seams for the skirt are towards the back and the zip is inserted within a seam. This does cause issues if you need to resize and it’s not just a simple taking on of the side seams.

Overall, I really love the fit of the dress. Even with the v neck it’s not too low to make me feel conscious and it’s actually quite roomy at the waist. This will help to keep cool in the warmer months. The midi length is just perfect and I didn’t need to adjust that. I’m 1.72m and it comes to mid way on my shin.
