Paradise Island Shift Dress – Ladies
Brand Bella Sunshine Designs
Shift dresses have always been a favorite of mine. They are flattering to a wide range of body types, and they show off that favorite print of the fabric you’ve been hoarding. The shift dress is a classic look that hugs your curves. The neckline gives a nice, feminine detail without over complicating the design. The concealed zipper gives the dress a polished finish without distracting from the print. The length is designed to hit right above the knee, making it perfect for summer. Since this pattern comes in seven cup sizes, we’ve taken the guess work out of bust adjustments for you.
It is recommended to sew a muslin in test fabric before cutting into your favorite fabric so any personal alterations can be made. This ensures you get the perfect fit on the final garment.
