The Coram Top and Dress Pattern
The Coram Top and Dress is a loose-fitting raglan ideal for woven fabrics with drape.
This design features bust and shoulder darts for shaping. Sleeve cuffs offer a clean finish and a curved, dolphin hem provides visual interest.
View A (top) features a hi-low hem, while the hem of View B (dress) is even from front to back.
This pattern is well suited for the beginner sewist.
Suitable fabrics for the Coram Top and Dress include those woven with drape, for example our lovely range of dressmaking fabrics such as Cotton Lawn fabrics, Linen and Linen blends, as well as Rayon Challis and Viscose.
The Highlands Wrap Dress Pattern
This woven dress features a faced V-neckline and waist ties that are secured at the side of the waist.
Both the midi and maxi lengths feature a side slit that ends above the knee and a wide hem that complements the dress facings.
This dress has the option for short sleeves or a sleeveless option with armhole facings.
The Highlands Wrap Dress should be sewn using mid-to lightweight woven dressmaking fabrics with lots of drape.
Using a stretch fabric is not recommended for this design.
The Highlands Wrap Dress is well suited for advanced beginner sewists and all levels above.
