32 - 58

The ultra demure ankle length dress trend is far from over, and the Holly dress pays hommage to this trend with perfection! This pattern just had to have a standing collar. In keeping with the style it features subtle gathers at the neckline and has been finished with an invisible zip. Not convinced about the length? Altering this pattern to your taste is easy!

Fabric advice

If you want to do justice to the austere cut of this dress, make it in a fabric with a print – think ditsy florals. Use a fabric with a fluid drape that doesn't hang too heavily. That way you get a lovely ‘puffed’ effect at the wrist trim and the length won’t be too bulky for the dress. We used a light, floral-print fabric made from viscose and wool.
