Phoebe is a “loose” dress that takes cues from boho chic inspiration.
The voluntarily loose-fitting bodice features a V-neck, and is gathered into skirts, which brings a lovely romantic volume to the whole garment, quite enjoyable in the warm summer months. The skirt pieces and the bodice are separated at the waist by a waistband, for a graphic look.
The same pattern can be found in the sleeve: the upper right sleeve is followed by a bracelet and a lower sleeve piece is gathered into an elasticated band at the wrist, which gives it more fullness.
For the skirt, you have two options: a dress version or a blouse version.
With the Phoebe dress, you will be able to play around with a wide array of fabrics, prints or even add piping.
Seam allowances are included
