Embrace your feminine side with Style Arc’s latest dress sewing pattern release, the Ariana Woven Dress (paper, PDF, Etsy). Expressing the playful spirit of summer, Ariana is cleverly designed with a shirred panel at the centre back to encourage movement which also allows the dress bodice to fit like a glove.
Ariana revisits a classic shape and introduces today’s street style with its pockets and shirred back. She will have you feeling like a lady with the silhouette cinching at the waist to effortlessly flatter your curves. The flowing mid-length skirt couples nicely with a pair of your favourite sandals or some platform espadrilles to take you into the evening.
Dresses not your thing? No problems! Just leave off the skirt and you will fall in love with the sweet midriff top that looks cute paired back with your favourite jeans or tailored high-waist trousers.
