Bright Flower July Flowers Smocked Skirt Kit
July Flowers is a sleeveless woven dress or jumper with a lined bodice in sizes 3-12. Sized close enough to the body to be worn as a sleeveless dress; it also has enough ease to allow for a blouse or turtleneck to be worn under it in cooler weather. July Flowers comes with 2 bodice neck variations; a boat neck (View A) and a scoop neck (View B). The skirt of July Flowers may be smocked or gathered. A smocking design is included. July Flowers has a buttoned back bodice and skirt placket. It is hemmed with a tuck that allows the hem to be lengthened in the future if needed. July Flowers is also available in a downloadable PDF pattern, a paper pattern, a Gathered Skirt Kit and a Smocked Skirt Kit (has pre-pleated fabric).
