I love the versatility of layered dressing and this design is great for all seasons. It can be made in lightweight natural fabric such as voile or handkerchief linen for hot weather or wovens and mid weight knits and worn over long sleeve tops for Winter.
Adelaide is a round neck sleeveless tunic with 2 length options. The tunic falls almost to the knee and the dress is at lower calf length (on average height woman 162cm or 5” 7”) The hi/lo hemline falls to 2 handkerchief points at the front and back. The deep pleat at the centre front and centre back gives the garment fullness and swing. The armhole is deeply cut as the garment is intended to be worn over a singlet or long sleeve top.
The pattern has 15 pages of instructions with diagrams and pictures. It can be printed at home on 52 x A4 pages or 2 x AO pages at a copy shop (in Australia at Officeworks cost is $4pp)
