Alix Dress PDF

By Hand London



Buy the Alix Dress sewing pattern from By Hand London. Inspired by the dreamy glamour of the 70s, Alix will take you effortlessly from a hazy summer festival to an elegant soirée in town. Alix is a high-waisted prairie dress with a v-neck yoke, inset waistband, tie back belt and a full skirt, pleated at centre front and back. And best of all, no zipper! With long, billowing raglan sleeves secured at the wrist with a delicate elasticated cuff and three skirt length options (and everything in between!) Alix can be just as at home worn with a pair of beat-up old jeans as she is swooshing down the red carpet!
