April Rhodes - Date Night Dress & Slip

The Date Night Dress is an effortless garment with subtle drama. The flutter sleeves flatter arms and the open armhole can be slightly sultry, offering a teasing peek at the Simple Slip or perhaps a lacy bra underneath. There are several ways to style--wear it loose, with a ready-made belt, with shirring, or with a fabric sash. Both the box pleat at the back of the neck and the soft shirttail hem add a bit more interest, and you can show as much or as little leg as you like by shortening or lengthening the pattern pieces. The Simple Slip is a quick-to-sew, easy-to-wear piece. It’s perfect for layering under any dress, but completely suitable for wearing alone. It’s especially comfy for bed!
