BY HAND London - Sophia Dress

£14.00 £10.00

The Sophia Dress

An incredibly versatile party dress featuring a fitted sleeveless V-neck bodice with angled darts and armholes. Variation 1 transforms the somewhat edgy bodice into a vintage lover’s dream, boasting a wide sailor collar and full skirt with multiple panels and godets, while Variation 2 opts for a sleeker, more modern silhouette - angled darts mirror those on the bodice, and a sexy centre front split make this sheath dress anything but plain.

Multi-sized sewing pattern from UK 6 / US 2 up to UK 20 / US 16
