Frida Dress and Top Sewing Pattern - By Emporia

Sizes 6-24

Frida is a loose-fitting dress designed for either summer or winter wear – details include a split panelled yoke at the front neckline and cuffs on the grown-on sleeve, just above the elbow. A full gathered skirt piece hangs from mid bust, creating a casual flowy silhouette, and large patch pockets add a functional as well as decorative element. Frida can also be made as a swing top to pair with jeans or culottes.

Designed to be made from lightweight wovens that have either drape or body depending on your desired look - try cotton lawn, viscose, crepe, silk, poplin, fine chambray, broderie anglaise, or lightweight needlecord for the colder months.
