Staff Made — Make by TFS Ivy Dress + Top
Jun 10 2021

Our Ivy Dress + Top pattern is an everyday staple - a modern dress + top pattern with options galore! This pattern suits a variety of light-mid weight woven fabrics.

The Dress (View A) features a boxy straight-fit through the bodice with a dropped waist and a generous gathered full skirt, in-seam pockets, and a deep turned-back hem.

The Top (View B) features a fully faced peplum-style hem. Both views have a centre back neck opening and three collar options are provided, including a Peter Pan Collar, fully faced Round Neck, or a Tie Back Collar. Your Ivy Dress + Top can be made sleeveless, with a short sleeve (using the indication lines provided), or with a full-length sleeve gathered at the wrist. If you choose to make the full-length gathered sleeve, you have the option of a button tab cuff or a tie cuff!

This downloadable PDF pattern is supplied as an A4/US letter print-at-home version and an A0 copyshop version with an instruction booklet included.
