April is an A-line dress pattern designed for woven fabrics. It features a wavy design line that goes all the way around the body. Make April in an understated linen, or go wild with a colour block!
The skirt has two different options: a gathered view and a flat view, so you can choose your silhouette. It also comes with the option of a rounded tie belt, which echoes the curves of the dress design.
This is an easy-fit pattern, the only closure being a hook and eye at the back neck. There are three bust fit options available, so you can get a great fit.
If you are feeling ambitious, you can up the skill level with a pocket hidden in the wavy seam. Or, keep things simple and discreet with an in-seam pocket at the side.
April will increase your skill set and keep your sewing life interesting!
