A lovely summer dress pattern from Lisa Comfort.
Inspired by Lisa’s love of vintage 1950’s fashion and pretty feminine shapes, the Doris Dress is semi-fitted with a flattering scooped neck bodice, bust pleats for delicate shaping and floaty grown-on sleeves.
The waist can be left unfitted for warmer days, or cinched in at the back with the attached ties or fixed back belt.
The fluted panelled skirt has two length variations – short and cute above the knee, or an elegant below the knee option. The Doris Dress closes with a concealed zip in the side seam and has an optional buttonhole closure at the centre front. The bodice is finished with facings for a neat finish on the inside.
