get ready for a school photo this digital release thursday

This week’s Digital Release Thursday pattern is our popular School Photo Dress.

School Photo Modeled

This lined, above-the-knee-length, A-line dress features a hidden, on-seam, front kangaroo pocket and an invisible back zipper. The pattern comes with two views. View A (shown above) has a stand-away, roll collar and 3/4-length cuffed sleeves. View B includes a ruffle collar and gathered, bias-bound, 3/4-length sleeves.

School Photo, View B in Silk

This style is undeniably more dressy than many of our other designs (it is, after all, intended to be worn for a school photo!), but your choice of fabric makes a big difference in the feel of the finished garment. Just compare the dressy, special occasion look you can achieve with a silk dupioni (above) with the somewhat more casual look when the same view is made with a printed cotton (below).
