Amelia Maxi, Dress & Top – Ladies
Brand Bella Sunshine Designs
The Amelia is the perfect dress for any occasion. It can be dressed up for a fancy brunch or casual enough for a stroll on the beach. The wrap front bodice beautifully accentuates the body. The empire waist is flattering no matter what your shape is and the gathered band gives a nice detail not often found in dresses like this. The knit bodice can be paired with a knit or woven skirt. And since the pattern comes in sleeveless, short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve, and long sleeve, you are ready for any season. On top of the multiple sleeve lengths, the pattern includes options for a top length, knee length dress, and a maxi. Also, as with all our knit women’s pattern, and optional full bust adjustment is included in the pattern making fitting a breeze.

- 4-way stretch knit fabric with at least a 50% stretch but no more than 75% stretch for the bodice and band- Recommend a blend of at least 5% spandex/lycra for good recovery. A similar or lighter weight spandex/lycra is recommended for the lining of similar weight and stretch. Avoid loose or slinky knits as they tend to stretch and sag. The bodice is not recommended for 2 way stretch. Cotton lycra is a perfect choice for the bodice.
- Knit or woven fabric for the skirt. Keep in mind a wide fabric is needed especially for the maxi version.
- 1/4” (0.5cm) Clear elastic to stabilize garment.
