Waist Defining Diagonal Seams!
Love sewing knits? Take it up a notch with the cleverly constructed Zadie dress. The striking Z-shaped seams, empire waistline and semi-pleated flared skirt create a swoonsome fit, with practical in-seam pockets and a round neckband. With a choice of cap, three-quarter or full-length raglan sleeves, you can wear Zadie at any time of the year for effortless style that's oh so comfortable.
If you’re a fan of the Coco or Agnes patterns, this project will take your knit fabric sewing skills to the next level.
