Dress - PDF pattern for women - intermediate - Envie
Envy (Envie in French), often also interpreted as jealousy, is a vice with a virtue. It pushes us to do better, to be better, and to challenge ourselves to achieve progress.
Do you ever feel envious when your friend shows you her latest dress and then boasts that she made it all by herself ? If you’re like me you’re probably already saying to yourself : " I can do this too, and I will make an even better version ".
I promise you there’s no better pattern out there than Envy if you’re up for a little challenge and a wish to look sublime! Envy is flattering because of its delicate bows in the back, thoughtfully placed princess seams which carefully define the waist before going out with a flare that will elongate your legs. So what are you waiting for ? Let’s get sewing for a perfect summer dress, or maybe will it be a cocktail dress for a friend’s wedding, or a sexy dress for an upcoming date…. this dress is very versatile !
