The Charleston Dress by Hey June Patterns is a pattern that can be altered and customized to your needs or the season of the year. View A has a fitted bodice, an A-line skirt, scooped pockets, and front pleats. View B has a fitted bodice and a fitted skirt. Both views have a semi-exposed zipper in the back perfect for adding a bit of contrast if that's your style. Additionally, there are seven sleeve options ranging from a short ruffled sleeve to a full-length sleeve! This dress can transition from casual to dressy depending on the version or fabric you use. Add some contrast piping along the matching front seams for an edgier look or layer a collared button-up underneath for a day in the office.

Additional Notes

This PDF sewing pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

This garment came togethet more quickly and more easily than I expected. Achieving professional looking results was satisfyingly simple.

I don't like how bulky the neck and arm bindings get, and I'll try a different method for the next dress.

Extremely detailed directions!

This was actually a Liverpool knit!

This is such a great pattern. i love the option for a more fitted dress as well as a looser fitting style
