Named Clothing - Lexi A-Line Top & Dress

This pattern includes pieces for an A-line dress and an elbow-length A-line top. Both variations have a loose fit with slight boat neck and long bust darts to the front. The fully lined dress has a drop waist, above the knee length skirt and three-quarter length sleeves. It has two sewn-down pleats in the front and back, which gives the dress a 'flapper' look. The top is cropped with wide elbow-length sleeves. The dress has a back invisible zipper, while the top can be slipped on over the head - also making it straightforward to sew.

Sizes: EUR 32 to 50 (US 0-14, UK 4-22).

Choose a light to mediumweight woven, with or without a bit of stretch, such as wool crepe (see image). The top is better made up in a stretch knit so that you can get it over the head easier - a stable jersey such as interlock, ponte or bonded jersey.
