The Oxanne dress is very feminine and romantic.
At the front, you may choose to go for a one-piece or a two-piece dress (bodice + skirt) that will more figure-flattering. In option 2, the bodice features an empire style waistline flowing into a slightly flared “skirt” with 4 pleats that gives the skirt more volume and a touch of romance.
At the back, Oxanne features a buttoned-down back bodice, and a very feminine squared neckline, flowing over a slightly flared “skirt” with 4 pleats.
The bottom edge of the sleeve openings is slightly puffed, and features two pleats reminiscent of the pleats of the dress. The sleeve closes with two-button fitted cuff.
Shorten it by a few inches and Oxanne turns into a lovely blouse!
Seam allowances are included
