SHELBY DRESS & ROMPER • Pattern
By TRUE BIAS, The Shelby Dress & Romper is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: The Shelby pattern is a princess-seamed dress or romper with four views. Each has a V-shaped neckline, front button opening, and back waist tie. Views A and B are dresses with a traditional short sleeve.
View A is a mini dress hitting mid-thigh, while View B is a longer dress that ends around the ankle.
Views C and D are rompers with a cap sleeve. The romper gives the illusion of being a dress with the coverage of a short or pant. View C is a mini length romper hitting mid-thigh, while View D’s hem ends just above the ankle.
