Syli Dress & Blouse
The Syli Dress & Blouse are relaxed everyday garments with a loose fit. Both variations feature a gathered bodice, a shallow tuck across the chest and a hemline that dips slightly longer in back. The neckline is finished with binding with a back vent secured by ties.
The calf-length dress has two deep tucks around the hemline of both the skirt and sleeves, as well as in-seam side pockets. The 3/4 length sleeves of the dress have gathered ends finished with binding and ties.
The blouse is hip length and has straight 1/2 length sleeves.
Includes sizes XS - XXL (bust sizes 74cm - 131cm).
Choose a light to medium-weight, non-stretch fabric. Select either a low-drape fabric or a fabric with a little drape. Cotton, linen, Tencel and rayon shirtings and dress-weight fabrics are recommended. If your fabric is light or drapey, interface the pocket openings of the dress.
The fabric requirements include a 5% allowance for shrinkage. Note that fabric consumption may be greater for fabrics with a pattern and for fabrics that need to be cut in one direction.
