Mayfair Dress - Nina Lee
The Mayfair Dress is a jersey dream designed to carry you from office to cocktails, from beach to bar, or from sofa to fridge and back again! It’s comfortable, elegant, supremely flattering and wonderfully versatile.
With three sleeve lengths and a knee-length or maxi skirt option, this pattern has got all situations covered. Its relaxed fit and gently flowing lines create a winning combination of easy-to-wear and effortlessly stylish. Pair the maxi with sandals and a broad-brimmed hat in the summer; pair the knee-length with long sleeves and tights and boots to see you through the winter. Mayfair is for all occasions, all year!
The dress features an all-in-one grown-on collar and facing, set-in sleeves and a gathered waist at the centre-front, with an attached waist tie for tying at the back or front of the dress. No experience sewing with knits necessary – the pattern includes a section on ‘Tips for Sewing with Knits’.
