Papercut Patterns - Meridian Dress
About the Meridian Dress
This is an elegant, trans-seasonal statement dress. It features a centre front seam, and each front bodice piece incorporates a tie that crosses the body and wraps around to the back of the dress, creating beautiful folds and the wrap feature at the front. The back has a button and loop closure, and as the invisible zip starts mid back, there is a vent in between the button and zip. The Meridian dress has front and back neck facings, and front and back pleats on the skirt. There are options for both sleeve and skirt length. making is perfect for any time of year.
The pattern is in the new Papercut Patterns packaging, which is white (and is thus easier to trace), lighter weight, and made from recycled materials in New Zealand.
