The Gin and Tonic Dress is a real eye-catcher! This is a flattering A-line dress, with a unique “grown-on” wrap detail. It is designed to be made in two contrasting fabrics, but looks equally lovely in a single colour. The dress closes with an invisible zipper, and features a lovely wide neckline.

Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate The construction is quite straightforward, though beginners may find the invisible zipper a little challenging. Detailed sewing instructions are included.
