Dahlia Dress


Seasons change and wardrobes transition, but Dahlia remains the perfect dress all year long.

Version 1 is perfect for cooler weather; the 3/4-sleeved raglan- style dress has a flat front skirt which sports a kick pleat at the back hem. Small gathers create gentle curves around an inset waist yoke. The neckline and sleeves are finished with bias tape for a clean look without the need for fussy facing pieces.

Version 2 is summery and sleeveless, featuring straps cleverly constructed from bias tape, and a six-panel skirt. This version of Dahlia is ideal for warmer months, for layering under sweaters, or for creating an understated cocktail dress.
