The Iceberg Maxi Dress is a slinky long sleeved dress designed for knit fabrics. Striking and comfortable at the same time - this is an extremely quick sew, especially if you have an overlocker/serger - but don't be put off if you don't have one.
FIT The fit is snug at the bust and hips with a bit a ease at the waist.
VARIATIONS The pattern is drafted to just above ankle length but chop to mid-calf, knee or mini as desired. You could also shorten the sleeves to elbow or cap for endless variations.
LEVEL Easy for beginners, quick for the more experienced.
FABRIC A knit fabric, such as wool, cotton or viscose jersey. A heavier weight fabric will be more flattering and hold the shape of the dress best.
You will need 2.2m/2 1/2 yards of fabric, at least 140cm/55" wide.
HABERDASHERY 50cm/20ins seam tape.
