Wiksten Women's Shift Dress + Top Paper Pattern

Top and two dresses in the one pack.

Full size range sizes 0-22

This loose shift is both comfortable and elegant, the perfect wardrobe staple. Choose from three different lengths: a cropped top, above-the-knee dress, or calf-length dress with side slits. The top has a plain back, while the dress has added fullness from back gathers. Patch pockets, waist tie, and three quarter length sleeve options are included. Neck is finished with an easy-to-sew facing.

Sizes: US Women's sizes 0-22.  Model is 5'11" tall and a size 4 and is wearing a 4 in the top and a 0 in the dress (dress has more ease than top).  The oversized fit makes it possible to size down, but the bicep needs at least 3" ease for comfort.  Finished garment measurements are included in the pattern.

Printed pattern: tissue paper pattern sheet and 6.5"x 8.5" instruction booklet with black and white illustrations and color photos in a 7"x 9"recycled paper envelope.
