Price: $10.00
Brand: Sew House Seven
Item: OLV-SHS-Miss-D
Difficulty:

The Mississippi Avenue Dress or Top has a very feminine, flattering and easy style. As a sleeveless style, it lends itself to spring and summer dressing; however, it makes a great transition piece when paired with a cardigan, tights, and boots. It can have a vintage look to it when sewn in a fabric such as rayon challis or something with some drape to it. It can have a more modern look to it when sewn in a crisp linen or cotton. Any way you fashion it, it's a great style.

    Description

    The Mississippi Avenue Dress or Top has a very feminine, flattering and easy style. As a sleeveless style, it lends itself to spring and summer dressing; however, it makes a great transition piece when paired with a cardigan, tights, and boots. It can have a vintage look to it when sewn in a fabric such as rayon challis or something with some drape to it. It can have a more modern look to it when sewn in a crisp linen or cotton. Any way you fashion it, it's a great style. It features a V-neckline, spaghetti shoulder ties, an elastic almost empire waist (slightly higher than the natural waistline) and has a front panel that creates a slimming and interesting design feature. There are three options for length: Dress C falls a little below the knee, Dress B falls above the knee, and Top A falls below the high hip.

    Suggested Fabrics

    Light weight fabrics with some drape such as rayon challis, wool challis, cotton lawn, cotton voile, some linens, chambray, and cotton madras.

    Notions

    Thread, approximately 1 yard of 3/8" wide elastic (about 2” smaller than your waist measurement).
