4-piece pattern originally by German Beyer's Modenblatt, the dress closed with 6 buttons down the front and was sewn at the center the rest of the way to the hem. I have given it 9 buttons leaving the front edges free and finished with a front facing. An optional belt fastens to the dress at the front via buttonholes at each end to fasten at the front waistline button. The neckline is cut out and shaped and bodice is fitted at the front armhole and front and back waistline with darts. 5/8" seams are given.
SUGGESTED DRESS FABRICS: Solid or printed cotton, linen, silk shantung.
@jenniebean.makes was selected in the June monthly random drawing for $25 off at EvaDress.com! She made this beach dress into a truly 'Sea to Summit' style by making it one of her 'Mountain Get-Away' dresses. Since her input about the front facing not being wide enough to clear the neckline cut-out, I added a note on the pattern to narrowly hem the inside facing edge to just 1/4" rather than the original 5/8" advice.
Size set A fits 12-16 (30" to 34" bust, 24" to 28" waist, 33" to 37" hip).
