Silo Dress PDF Pattern
Funnel yourself into this dress and enjoy the effortless look. The collar can be worn as a drapey cowl or a structured standing collar. The deep armholes make it breezy for summer or optimal for layering in the cold months. The barrel-shaped silhouette elevates the shift dress style into a more modern look.
Intermediate Level - average 6 hours of prep and sewing.
Sizes: XXS - 4X (see the reference size chart in the images)
Fabric suggestions: The Silo Dress can be made with woven or knit fabric. Use something with drape to get that cowl neck look or make it stand up straight with a stiffer fabric. The body has a slight funnel shape which lends well to a fabric with a little structure. Try it in a knit and make it the most comfortable outfit you own. Some options include: linen, denim, gauze, twill, canvas, double weave, cotton Fleece
