// The Ivy Dress + Top is an everyday staple - a modern dress + top pattern with options galore! The Dress (View A) features a boxy straight-fit through the bodice with a dropped waist and a generous gathered full skirt, in-seam pockets, and a deep turned-back hem. The Top (View B) features a fully faced peplum-style hem. Both views have a centre back neck opening and three collar options are provided, including a Peter Pan Collar, fully faced Round Neck, or a Tie Back Collar. Your Ivy Dress + Top can be made sleeveless, with a short sleeve (using the indication lines provided), or with a full-length sleeve gathered at the wrist. If you choose to make the full-length gathered sleeve, you have the option of a button tab cuff or a tie cuff. #TFSIvyDress #TFSIvyTop

Fabric Yield Recommendations

Recommended Fabric + Supplies

Fabric
The Ivy Dress + Top is designed for light - medium weight woven fabrics such as linen, cotton and silk. We love how this pattern looks and feels in our Vintage Finish and Gingham Linens. For a pop of colour, you could also try a Liberty cotton print!

Interfacing
Interfacing is recommended for both cuff options and also for the collar pieces if you are sewing the Peter Pan Collar or Tie Back Collar. The neck facings for all views will also require interfacing. Select a woven interfacing in a weight appropriate for the fabric you are using.

Thread
You will need at least one spool of thread for straight stitching, and 4 additional threads if you choose to overlock or serge the exposed interior seams.

Buttons
If you are sewing the Peter Pan Collar or Round Neck you will need 1 x 12mm button for the back neck closure. If you are sewing the full length sleeve option with Button Cuff you will need an additional 2 x 12mm buttons.

Tools
The Bloom Shirt + Dress can be completed with a regular domestic sewing machine, with zig zag stitch capability and buttonhole function. If desired, you can finish/neaten interior exposed seams with an overlocker/serger.

You will also require an iron, a point turner, a sharp pair of sewing scissors and pins.
