April Rhodes: The Date Night Dress

The Date night dress is April Rhodes newest pattern. It comes with two fabulous patterns: The Date Night Dress and the Simple slip.

THE DATE NIGHT DRESS is an effortless garment with subtle drama. The flutter sleeves flatter arms and the open armhole can be slightly sultry, offering a teasing peek at the Simple Slip or perhaps a lacy bra underneath. There are several ways to style--wear it loose, with a ready-made belt, with shirring, or with a fabric sash. Both the box pleat at the back of the neck and the soft shirttail hem add a bit more interest, and you can show as much or as little leg as you like by shortening or lengthening the pattern pieces.

SIMPLE SLIP is a quick-to-sew, easy-to-wear piece. It’s perfect for layering under any dress, but completely suitable for wearing alone. It’s especially comfy for bed!

Suitable for beginning sewers. Full color photos and instructions for each step. Includes women's sizes xs-xxl.
