Nina Lee Mayfair Dress Sewing Pattern
The Nina Lee Mayfair Dress Sewing Pattern creates a wonderfully versatile V-neck jersey dress. It will carry you from office to cocktails, from beach to bar, or from sofa to fridge and back again. Additionally, it’s comfortable, elegant and supremely flattering. This sewing pattern features short sleeves, three-quarter sleeves and long sleeves as options. Additionally, it offers a knee-length (midi) or maxi skirt option. The relaxed fit and gently flowing lines create a winning combination of easy-to-wear and effortlessly stylish. Pair the maxi with sandals and a broad-brimmed hat in the summer. Alternatively, pair the knee-length with long sleeves and tights and boots to see you through the winter. The Mayfair Dress is for all occasions, all year!
The dress pattern features an all-in-one grown-on collar and facing, set-in sleeves and a gathered waist at the centre-front, with an attached waist tie for tying at the back or front of the dress.
