Detailed description

The Ilma Smock Dress and Top pattern includes two variations: an airy off-the-shoulder mini dress, and a cute A-line top. Both variations feature a wavy, tiered hemline and an elasticated neckline. The dress variation has wrist-length puff sleeves with gathered sleeve openings. The top comes with ruffle shoulder straps. You can also make a sleeveless dress with shoulder straps or sew the top with puff sleeves and off-the-shoulder neckline. Both variations are maternity friendly. Choose a non-stretch, light to medium weight fabric. Depending on the desired result, you can opt for an airy, low drape fabric, like Lady McElroy's Blush Blooms cotton lawn, or maybe our Cobalt Blue Broderie Anglaise for a super stylish summery dress. For a dressier finish that'll be perfect for evenings out on the town, have a look at our range of viscoses from the lovely Atelier Jupe. This pattern caters for sizes XS-XXL and is suitable for intermediate sewers. Want to make the Ilma but think you might need a little helping hand?
