By P&M Patterns, Zak Top & Dress is a paper sewing pattern.

Garment Details:  As a crop-top or shirt dress, Zak is an elegant pattern as well as modern and timeless, with nice finishing touches. The gathers under the (front and back) yokes give it a unique flair with a touch of retro. Comfort is in a not-too-tight waistband and a slightly loose fit. Many variations are offered such as:

- A V neckline that can either be modest or deep,

- The bodice can be sewn with flounce(s) (single or double) or without,

 - The armholes can be sleeveless or be adorned with short sleeves with cuffs or with cap sleeves,

- The bodice is fully lined, but you can choose to leave the skirt unlined: it will depend on your choice of fabric and the effect you want to achieve. 

Sizing: This is a multi-size pattern, including sizes 34 to 52. Sizing guide can be found here.
