Pattern Description:

No 60's inspired collection would be complete without a classic sheath dress, and this one features mod, circular cables on strings of stockinette. These unique cables are designed so that you can create your very own, one-of-a-kind garment by controlling the placement and repetition of them on your dress. Worked in two pieces and seamed together, the slimming silhouette is perfect for showing off your curves. Go on and flip your hair and paint the town red, Joanie style - all you need to finish off this Mad style is a vintage pen necklace! Want to turn it into a top, instead? Tips for modifying are included in the pattern.
