Nina Lee - Park Lane Dress and Blouse
About the Park Lane
Float away on a romantic dream of your own in the Park Lane Dress and Blouse. Choose between a flowing midi dress with delicate waistline gathers or the elegant darted blouse, both finished with a keyhole opening and button and rouleau loop closure at the back neck. Then mix and match amongst two different necklines and three sleeve variations, along with an optional shoulder ruffle. The full-length sleeves feature a button cuff with placket whereas the more voluminous mid and short sleeves finish with a plain band cuff.
For the Park Lane dress choose fabrics with plenty of drape such as viscose/rayon, crepe, or silk. For the blouse, select fabric as per the dress, but it would also work in soft cotton lawn, chambray, and double gauze.
For both you will need a small amount of interfacing for the cuffs and neckline. If your fabric is very fine or shifty you may want to also interface the zip area.
- All versions: 1 x 12mm/ 1/2 inch button (or preferred size)
- Full-length sleeve option: 4 x small cuff buttons (e.g. 9mm/3/8 inch)
- For dress: 1 x 41cm/16-inch concealed zipper
