    Description

    The Lexi A-Line Dress + Top includes two variations: an a-line dress and a half-sleeve top. Both variations have a loose fit, a boat neck and long bust darts at the front. The dress has a lowered waistline, and an above the knee length skirt. The dress is lined, and it has straight, 3/4-length sleeves, two pleats in the front and back skirt, and an invisible zipper at the back. The top is cropped and it has wide half-sleeves.

    Suggested Fabrics

    Select a light- or medium-weight fabric for the dress. The fabric can be non-stretch or with slight stretch. The sample is made up in a wool crepe. Select a medium-weight jersey for the top. For example interlock, ponte or scuba jersey. The sample is made of scuba. Use knit interfacing for knits and other stretch fabrics, and woven (or non-woven) interfacing for non-stretch.

  • This Named pattern comes in sizes EUR 32-50 (US 0-18/ UK 4-22). You will receive all these sizes with your order, unless otherwise indicated. Remember that the fit of a garment also depends on the style of the garment and whether it is fitted or loose. Each pattern will come with instructions that include a chart of finished garment measurements for all sizes. All Named patterns are designed for a 172 cm tall woman. You can always make your garments shorter or longer by amending the pattern. Please refer to the pattern alterations section of the Named website for further information on how to alter a Named pattern.

    If your measurements don’t fit one of these sizes you should go with either the closest chest or hip measurement, depending on the pattern in question. It is recommended that you choose the size with the closest chest measurement for tops, dresses and coats, and the closest hip measurement for pants and skirts.

    Always remember to check the following measurements:

    1. Chest measurement: Measure your chest across the fullest part, on top of your bra. Keep the measuring tape horizontally straight at the sides.
    2. Waist measurement: Measure against your skin, around the narrowest section of your waist.
    3. Hip measurement: Measure your hips at the widest part, on top of your underwear. Keep the measuring tape horizontally straight at the sides. Note that the widest part can also be the top of your thighs.
