Part of our 2018 Build a Wardrobe programming, our Frances Dress pattern includes three variations for the garment body: top, T-shirt dress, and baby doll dress. It also has two neckline options (v-neck and collared) and two sleeve options (cap and short). The Frances Dress features drop shoulder sleeves and a relaxed fit. Pattern comes in sizes XS to XXL along with instructions for fabric selection, cutting, and garment construction. This pattern is designed for use with The School of Making™ Studio Book Series as a reference for detailed sewing instruction.
