Sew Valerie in a variety of woven fabrics to take this style year-round with the different sleeve options. Choose from four sleeve options: long sleeves gathered into a cuff, a gathered three-quarter sleeve, a plain short sleeve, or a short sleeve finished with a flounce. There are also three bust fit options to make fitting easier!
The Valerie dress features elegantly curved raglan lines on the front and back, a fitted bodice, and an A-line skirt with slash pockets. The raglan sleeve is tailored with a dart at the shoulder.
The diagonal design lines that repeat in the raglan lines and pockets are a great opportunity to play with colour-blocking, piping or top stitching. Try a casual cotton chambray or linen to bring out the sporty feel to the design lines, or dress to impress with a stunning print, or fabric with a sheen.
This pattern includes bust options with different pattern files for small, medium or full busts. Please refer to the size chart.
