I am AURA - A-Line Dress / Top Pattern - I AM PATTERNS

$20.90

I am Aura, a simple and elegant high-low hem A-line dress. I can be made as a top and also as a dress with a gathered ruffle band, finishing above the knee. My rounded neckline allows you to slip me on easily without the need to sew a closure. I feature a bust dart and I am lined to the chest to beautifully finish the armholes and neckline. Although simple to sew, I deliver great impact, so I am perfect for beginners and experienced sewists.

Level: Simple

PAPER PATTERN

All seam allowances are included in the pattern.
