Dressmaking for Beginners

A must have wardrobe classic - 50's inspired dress with a modern vibe. Designed by the little woollie team and part of our indie pattern collection.

This dress is so flattering for all shapes, the pattern comes in three lengths so you can have it mini, knee length or midi - totally up to you.  

Make it in cotton and wear it as a summer dress, or choose something like tafetta add a under skirt net and voila - a stunning party frock that totally rocks !
