Vita is a dress & blouse inspired by Edwardian fashion for modern makers. It features a high, shirred neckline Vita will definitely make you feel chic and confident for that work meeting or a special occasion.

Vita comes in two styles: a midi-length dress with a shirred waistline and skirt with side vents or a blouse with a soft silhouette that can be styled loosely or tucked in.

The pattern includes two sleeve variations and two optional back closures. The Vita dress and blouse is super versatile!
View A&C: Puffy, gathered sleeve with an internal sleeve head to give it more volume and a short, shirred cuff.
View B&D: Bishop sleeve with a wide, shirred cuff.

You can make Vita your own by choosing different back closures, a romantic bow or a delicate button and loop.

FABRIC & NOTIONS

Due to the nature of the shirring technique, light-weight woven fabrics including viscose/rayon, crepe, double gauze, cotton voile/batiste and silks are recommended. It is suggested to test the shirring on a sample of your selected fabric.

If you feel confident, this pattern would work well with fabrics like chiffon to layer over a slip dress.
