The Elsie Dress makes the ideal canvas for those special fabrics; think striking stretch cottons, brilliant brocades and dazzling jacquards. Cotton poplin, silk dupion, taffeta and even lighter soft furnishing fabrics would be lovely. Ideally you want to choose something with a bit of body so that the skirt can hold the pleats. We suggest avoiding anything with too much drape for Elsie. Because the bodice is fully lined, you will also need lining fabric.
The Elsie Dress is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See pattern details below for details on fabric requirements.
Like all Sew Over It patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
