The Hirondelle Dress is a model both suitable for mid-season and summer. It comes in several lengths to fit the season and the body type: blouse, short or midi dress, you choose! ✨
The cut highlights the bust through a sweetheart neckline, a princess cut and a back delicately revealed but bra compatible 😉
You can also make the model your own by choosing the sleeve length that suits you: sleeveless, ruffled sleeves, short sleeves or 3/4 tiered sleeves highlighted by smocks.
The lower part of the garment has a set of flat pleats for the back part and is gathered on the front.
This detail makes the dress baby bump compatible 🐣

For this dress, take into account mainly your bust size. The cut is adjusted only on the upper part of the bust. The waist size is only an indication since the garment is not adjusted at this level.
If you are between two sizes, take the size above.
All sizes :
Between 80″ (blouse with ruffled sleeve) and 120″ (midi dress with 3/4 sleeve) fabric (55″ wide)
16″ lightweight iron on interfacing
6″ thin elastic (3/16″)
3/4 sleeve version:
either 1 bobbin of elastic thread
either 80″ biais tape + 60″ thin elastic (3/16″)
The Hirondelle Dress is designed to be sewn in a non-stretch fabric. Depending on the season and the look you want, you can choose more or less fluid fabrics: viscose, viscose twill, viscose poplin, cotton satin, cotton poplin, tencel, etc.
The back part of the skirt has free flat pleats, some fabrics mark the pleat more or less well. Choose the fabric according to the desired result.
The bust of the dress is lined (to get a nice fall and finish), so you can either use the same main fabric to line your pieces or opt for another fabric such as cotton voile or viscose voile. It is best if the fabric and lining fall in the same way.
Sewing level : 4/5
