Sew House Seven

The Mississippi Avenue Dress or Top has a very feminine, flattering and easy style. As a sleeveless style, it lends itself to spring and summer dressing however, it makes a great transition piece when paired with a cardigan, tights and boots. It features a V-neckline, spaghetti shoulder ties, an elastic almost empire waist (slightly higher than the natural waistline) and has a front panel that creates a slimming and interesting design feature. There are 3 options for length - Dress C falls a little below the knee, Dress B falls above the knee and Top A falls below the high hip. This is a beginner level paper pattern.

Recommended Fabrics: lightweight fabrics with some drape such as rayon challis, wool challis, cotton lawn or voile, linen, chambray, cotton madras
