PREPARATION TIME Printing, sticking, cutting fabric and marking details 1 -2 hours Sewing time 4-7 hours (approx) The Daphne Day Dress is the perfect pattern for the intermediate sewer. This dress has a cut out back detail with a button closure and exposed zipper back fastening. The bodice has facing and a beautiful gathering detail under the bustline. The skirt has box pleats and it has two side seam pockets. The length measures 90cm from the center back neck. The skills required for this pattern include sewing pockets, inserting a zipper, gathering details and sewing a buttonhole.  


The Daphne Day Dress is a beautiful dress and has a real wow factor. The back detail and gathered bodice really make this dress stand out in a crowd. You will need to wear a strapless bra or a bra with a strap that sits wider on the back to allow for the cutout back detail. The length is what you could call “flirty” sitting just at the mid thigh. It will look gorgeous made up in a floral, polka dot or any print but equally as nice in a solid colour. Ideally it should be made up in a  light to medium weight cotton with a small amount of elastane such as Sateen.  Fabric without elastane will also work however you may need to add a bit more ease to the pattern. Chambray or a lightweight denim would look very modern. This is a dress you will wear to a picnic or a lovely afternoon tea with the girls.

The Daphne Day Dress pattern comes in sizes 6-18 (Australian standards).

    I adore this dress! It’s perfect- a little cute, a little sexy, a little edgy, and not too much of anything. It’s one of my favorite patterns.
