Sewing pattern description

The Celia dress sewing pattern by The Modern Sewing Co is fitted on the shoulders and features an a-line cut with plenty of room for comfort and movement. The two-piece sleeve and the collar add a touch or smartness to an otherwise casual dress.

The Celia dress can be made in a wide variety of dressmaking fabrics to suit different times of the year. Cottons and linens work very well for summer wearing, while light wool suiting could be used for a warmer winter dress.

Recommended fabrics: Light to mid-weight cottons and linens work well, tencels, silks or something heavier such as denims, corduroys or wool suiting
