Size: UK 8 - 22
Difficulty: Improving Beginner
Helena is a relaxed, easy to wear dress. The front curved yoke anchors the pintuck detail at the centre front, but this could easily be changed to pleats or gathers. The back yoke also lends itself to adaptations with the gathers changed to pleats as well.
The elbow length sleeves in view 1 can be extended into the 3/4 length sleeves in view 2. And the simple button and placket hold the turned up sleeves in place. Side pockets are a must and keep the lines of the dress clean and simple.
Lightweight cotton, poplins, soft linen, double gauze, viscose mix, crepe de chine, satin crepe.
Notions: Lightweight interfacing; matching thread.
Tools required: Dressmaking shears; pins; chalk or fabric marker; pattern weights
