The Flora Dress by By Hand London now in stock
Yay! By Hand London‘s latest pattern, the Flora Dress, is finally here! We got a sneak peek at this dress because we provided fabric for two of the pattern testers, so we’ve been keeping this secret for over a month.
Fundamentally feminine and universally flattering with her cinched waist and voluminous pleated straight or dipped hem circle skirt, Flora is the definitive party dress. Choose from two entirely different bodice variations: a classic sleeveless faux-wrap style or the more demure tank bodice, with her high square neckline and simple shoulder straps.
The world of fabrics is your oyster with the Flora Dress! Pretty much all wovens will work a treat (and even some stable knits such as ponte and double knit), especially: cotton lawn and quilting cottons, cotton voile, cotton poplin, cotton twill, seersucker, upholstery cottons, cotton silk, brocade, jacquard, taffeta, dupion silk, silk satin, silk crepe, silk habotai, wool crepe, wool tweed, eyelet lace, embroidered tulle, rayon etc.
I think the last version is my favourite. I’ve had dresses in a similar style before and they are soooo flattering. Which one will you sew first?
