Giselle is a V-neck dress with a tailored, shaped midriff and gathers over the bust. Inspired by prairie and dirndl dresses, this pattern also hints at the flowing, boho styles of the '70s.
Make it in a wild print and place the pattern to emphasize your waist, or a lightweight cotton voile or rayon challis for a summer maxi gown. The midriff is a great canvas for contrast prints or embroidery that creates a corset-like silhouette.
View A has a fitted midriff that hits at actual waist, three-quarter-length gathered sleeves, and gathered dirndl-style skirt. Instructions include options for finishing sleeves with two sleeve band styles, and option to substitute fuller skirt.
View B is a sleeveless maxi dress with narrower shoulders, empire waistline and a tiered skirt. Both views are shaped in the back by elastic and waist ties.
Dress can be made using either summer and winter weight fabrics.
Pattern is suitable for advanced beginner seamstresses. It comes with beautifully illustrated, detailed instructions that walk you through every step of construction.
