Sorry, currently out of stock (If this is a product being shipped from the US there are lengthy delays)
By SEW HOUSE SEVEN, Mississippi Avenue Dress & Top is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: The Mississippi Avenue Dress or Top has a very feminine, flattering and easy style. As a sleeveless style, it lends itself to spring and summer dressing however, it makes a great transition piece when paired with a cardigan, tights and boots. It can have a vintage look to it when sewn in a fabric such as rayon challis or something with some drape to it. It can have a more modern look to it when sewn in a crisp linen or cotton. Any way you fashion it, it's a great style. It features a V-neckline, spaghetti shoulder ties, an elastic almost empire waist (slightly higher than the natural waistline) and has a front panel that creates a slimming and interesting design feature.
There are 3 options for length - Dress C falls a little below the knee, Dress B falls above the knee and Top A falls below the high hip.
Sizing: This is a multi-size pattern, sizes 0-20. Sizing, finished garment measurements and fabric requirements can be found here.
Trims required: Matching thread, approximately 1yard of ⅜" wide elastic (about 2" smaller than your waist measurement)
Skill Level: Confident beginner level.
Seam allowances are included in the pattern.
Each pattern features an instruction booklet and pattern pieces printed on tissue paper.
