This semifitted sheath dress is designed to be flattering while also allowing you to move and to be comfortable. It includes a sash and belt loops for a more fitted look, and the pattern includes options for a wide variety of styles. Choose from long sleeves with a notched neckline or short sleeves with a feminine Peter Pan collar. Both dresses include an invisible side zipper and can be made lined or unlined. Instructions include detailed information for doing a full-bust adjustment.
