Special Price £12.00

Pattern Format: Paper
Size: XS - 3XL
Difficulty: Beginner

Myrtle is a knit dress with plenty of great shape.  The draped neckline can look classic (like a greek goddess), vintage (like a cocktail dress from the 1960s), or completely modern (in simple black or white). Wide encased elastic defines the waist for a silhouette that's flattering on a huge variety of body types.

Version 1 falls just below the knee. Version 2 is a little shorter and hits right above the knee, and includes button-on adjustable shoulder tabs that gather the shoulders a little more. Both feature in-seam pockets, a gorgeous draped neckline, and a flowing skirt gathered at the waist with comfortable elastic.

The dress could be lengthened into a maxi-length evening gown, or shortened into a sheer beach cover-up.

Although Myrtle is a knit dress, with a few minor tweaks, you can just as easily make it with wovens. That means that no matter what beautiful fabrics you encounter, you're sure to find plenty of ways to make this dress. Colette have released a downloadable instruction book 'How to sew Myrtle in woven fabrics' to guide you through this process.
