Buy the Kew Dress and Skirt sewing pattern from Nina Lee. Kew is a dreamy blend of vintage and contemporary elements inspired by the British summertime. Version 1 has a touch of 1940s tea dress, with ruched sleeves for those cooler days. Version 2 is hot-weather ready, with a strappy bodice and the option of on-trend cold-shoulder sleeves. Version 3 is a skirt adaptation, perfect for dressing up or down all year-round. The skirt for all three versions features an elegantly flattering high-low hem which dips at the back. All three options close with a front button fastening, and are finished on the inside with facings.

Suggested fabrics: Version 1: light to medium-weight fabrics with some drape, such as rayon, viscose, crepe, linen blends // Versions 2 and 3: as for version 1, as well as lightweight cotton, such as cotton lawn, or linen. Version 3 would also work well in medium-weight fabrics such as denim or corduroy.
