Now and Then - Ritz Pleat Dress
Now and Then Patterns are inspired by vintage, classic patterns. They are designed and made in the United Kingdom by Til the Sun Goes Down.
The Ritz Pleat Dress - the perfect dress for almost any occasion, depending on the fabric you choose. The key feature is the flattering pleats that drape from shoulder to centre front and the bias skirt that falls easily over the waist and hips. The pattern has 3 sleeve versions - Long straight, elbow length with/without gathers and a short fluted one. The dress comes to just below the knee with the option of making it full length.
Consider light to medium fabrics. Best results will be achieved using a fabric with some give and drape such as silk crepe de chine, viscose crepe, light weight wool crepe. Some plain weave fabrics like viscose may also be suitable.
- press studs for side opening or 18-20cm zip
This pattern includes sizes 8 - 22, which covers a bust of 84cm-120cm.
