The Smultron Dress is a voluminous, fun dress. It’s so easy to adapt to different lengths and works with an impressive variety of fabrics.
View A is a short, half circle, bias dress with a V-neck yoke, spaghetti straps, and an elastic back. You will learn how to:
– Make spaghetti straps
– Cut a bias dress
– Sew French seams
View B is a short, half circle, bias dress with a slightly curved neckline, spaghetti straps, and back ties.
In addition to what you will learn in View A, you will also learn:
– French seam slit (in the center back of the dress)
You can of course mix it up and put the back ties on View A, or elastic back on View B. The instructions also show you how to lengthen and shorten the dress, and add optional tiers.
This dress will look great in almost any woven fabrics, but a favorites for the Smultron include: light to midweight linen, cotton, chambray, rayon challis and twill, taffeta, and seersucker. The bias cut looks especially nice in a gingham or checkered fabric.
