Buy the Sylvie Dress, a fun fit and flare dress that will suit all your spring and summertime needs!
Both views of the Sylvie Dress feature an unlined sleeveless bodice, with three small darts under the bust, a wide lined waistband, and back bodice darts. The neckline and armholes are finished with bias-binding, and the dress is closed with an invisible zipper up the center back.
What we think: A sewing community favourite, the Sylvie dress has a fitted bodice finished with bias binding and a gathered skirt with patch pockets for everyday wear.
View A has an unlined gathered dirndl skirt that can be cut on the length of grain, or on the crossgrain, for use on a border print or for fabric with a finished selvage like eyelet. The skirt is topped with large rectangle patch pockets. The waistband and pockets can be cut on grain, or on the bias, as pictured with the gingham fabric in the photos.
View B has piping above and below the waistband, and features an unlined pencil skirt that is fitted with waist darts. The piping can be made with self-fabric, as in the orange linen in the photos, or with contrast fabric, as in the beige polka-dot fabric in the photos.
Suggested fabrics: For View A of the Sylvie Dress are lightweight woven fabrics, like quilt weight cotton, cotton shirting, lawn, swiss dot, double gauze, linen, chambray, or seersucker. View B can also be made in medium weight woven fabrics, like cotton or linen canvas or barkcloth.
