This is a stylish A-line shape, round neck dress, lovely to wear everyday, comfortable and practical in sizes from 8-22.
I've categorised this pattern as suitable for adventurous beginners, but some previous sewing experience would be advisable. Techniques involved are sewing in a dart, inserting a sleeve, making a button loop and some side pockets, so nothing too difficult.
Orla dress has two options, to make either with a buttoned placket detail with bias binding trim edging (Option A) or just a simple neck facing (Option B).
Orla Trapeze dress has two side pockets and a back neck opening, make in a choice of lengths: long (calf length) or short (knee length). There is also an option of making the sleeves in either three quarter or short length.
This is a simple and easy pattern which would make a great addition to your wardrobe at all times of year.
Suitable to make in a variety of fabrics such as linen, cotton, viscose or needlecord. Please see last picture for full details about size info, fabric requirements and finished garment measurements.
