Meet the Liz Dress! This gorgeous and feminine dress has beautiful details: a shelf bust with a pleated bra inset, a lovely underbust band that becomes a flattering shoulder strap, a pretty V-neck back, and a full and fabulous gathered skirt that you’ll love to flounce about in. It’s all topped off with a waist tie with optional hand-sewn fringe ends. As always, Charm Pattern's “choose your own adventure” instructions will show you the best techniques for a beautifully fitted and constructed garment while letting you be the mistress of your own sewing destiny.
