The Cordelia Dress
The Cordelia Jersey Dress or Tunic is simple and elegant
with a clever little twist at the front empire seam and gentle gathers that
fall gracefully down the front.
The back skirt has darts to give a nipped in shape, so itís perfect for all shapes and sizes and
will take you through all four seasons with ease.
Version 1 is sleeveless so perfect for the hot summer days to come. Alternatively you can layer it over your favourite T-shirt too
Version 2 has straight, set in sleeves that are 3/4 length, a little bit more covered up for cooler days.
Version 3 has pretty flared short set in sleeves that give a softness to the overall feel of the dress.
All versions can be made to the shorter length to create a versatile tunic.
Light to medium weight jersey fabrics such as single jersey, double jersey or even a French terry jersey.
You will also need narrow 1/4 wide elastic and the correct needle for your fabric. A twin needle on your machine gives a great finish to the hems too.
