Wiksten Shift Dress
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.
This is a multi-sized pattern, 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.
- light to medium weight fabric with good drape, such as brushed cotton, gauze, voile, lawn, flannel, chambray, linen, silk crepe, charmeuse, silk noil, rayon
-1/4 yd lightweight fusible interfacing to add structure to neck facing (optional)
