By THE ASSEMBLY LINE, the Barrel Dress is a paper sewing pattern.

Garment Details: The Barrel dress offers ample space and an intriguing silhouette. It comes with a midi skirt with a barrel-like shape and can be sewn with sculpted sleeves that complement the skirt's form, or it can be sleeveless. The sleeveless version is a perfect addition to your summer wardrobe!

The dress features a rounded neckline with a keyhole opening at the back, closed with a button and loop. You can choose to use bias binding along both the neckline and armholes or sleeve hem if you want to create a more relaxed version. And, of course, pockets in side seams!

Sizing: This is a multi-size pattern, including sizes XS-L and XL-3XL. Sizing information can be found here.
