The Daphne Day Dress is the perfect pattern for the intermediate sewer. This dress has a cut out back detail with a button closure and exposed zipper back fastening. The bodice has facing and a beautiful gathering detail under the bustline. The skirt has box pleats and it has two side seam pockets. The length measures 90cm from the center back neck. The skills required for this pattern include sewing pockets, inserting a zipper, gathering details and sewing a buttonhole.
Ideally it should be made up in a light to medium weight cotton with a small amount of elastane such as Sateen. Fabric without elastane will also work however you may need to add a bit more ease to the pattern. Chambray or a lightweight denim would look very modern. This is a dress you will wear to a picnic or a lovely afternoon tea with the girls.
The Daphne Day Dress pattern comes in sizes 6-18 (Australian standards).
