Kim Dress PDF
By Hand London
Buy the Kim Dress sewing pattern from By Hand London. Kim is sexy and slinky, but also demure and girly. The fully lined, princess seamed sleeveless bodice, which comes with a choice of a simple scooped or vintage sweetheart necklines, also has two very different skirt options. Variation 1 boasts a wrap-style pencil skirt with a curved, petal-like overlap, while the gathered skirt with pintuck hem of Variation 2 nods nostalgically to dresses of the 50s.
