Borne out of a desire for a graceful, grown-up party dress, the Elsie Dress is perfect for warm, balmy evenings in the sun, as well as those festive, wintery soirees. With a gently curved V-neckline, flattering princess seams, dramatic pleats and a nod to our favorite fashions of the ’50s, the Elsie Dress is elegant, sophisticated and guaranteed to catch an eye. We can definitely see Betty Draper in this!
Designed to have that immaculate finish inside as well as out, Elsie features a fully lined and faced bodice, neat invisible zip and delicate hand finishing. The pattern also comes with a quick-to-sew skirt version too.
