Our Brigitte Top to Dress

Brigitte Dress in Ondula Plum Jersey
To create a slimline dress for this lovely and oh-so soft Italian jersey, we made a simple modification to our Brigitte Top. The original pattern was lengthened at the hemline by 18" (46cm), continuing the original hipline all the way to the hem edge. The finished length of this dress is 39" (100cm) and it includes a half inch hem. 
If needed, you could add half an inch at the hip point and then taper back at the hemline.
Worn together with the Sydney Jacket

If you like the look of this jersey, it also comes in two other fabulous colourways - Fresh and Antique.
Ondula Fresh
Ondula Antique
Ondula Plum
