Named Clothing - Syli Dress
This product is currently sold out.
This dress and blouse are relaxed everyday garments with a loose fit. Both variations feature a gathered bodice, a shallow tuck across the chest, and a hemline that dips slightly longer in back. The neckline, finished with binding, has a back vent secured by ties. The calf-length dress has two deep tucks around the hemline of both the skirt and sleeves as well as in-seam side pockets. The 3/4-length sleeves of the dress have gathered ends finished with binding and ties. The blouse is hip-length and has straight half-length sleeves with turned hems.
Suggested fabrics: Choose a light to medium-weight, non-stretch fabric. Depending on the desired result, you can select either a low-drape fabric or a fabric with a little drape. Cotton, linen, Tencel and rayon shirtings or dress-weight fabrics are recommended. You can cut the binding from your fabric or choose a pre-made binding. If your fabric is light or drapey, interface the pocket openings of the dress using fusible interfacing.
Fabric requirements: The fabric requirements include a 5% allowance for shrinkage. Note that the fabric consumption may be greater for fabrics with a pattern and for fabrics that need to be cut in one direction.
