Please note - this is the original pattern, not the updated 2020 version with expanded sizing.
The Hughes Dress is the perfect everyday dress. It features princess seams, sleeves that gather at the cap, and a gorgeous scoop neckline. It buttons (or snaps) up the front and has an adjustable lace-up tie in the back. This pattern comes with options to cut it as a peplum top, above-the-knee length dress, or midi dress. The Hughes Dress is designed to be beautiful and flattering with design elements that make it comfortable and easy to wear.
The Hughes Dress is designed for woven fabrics. You will get a different look depending on the fabric you select. A drapey rayon or silk will give a more elegant dressy look, while a more sturdy fabric like a linen will give you a gorgeous everyday dress. We encourage you to be creative and daring with fabric! It would look amazing in a double gauze cotton, a nice shirting, rayon challis, or lightweight canvas - you can’t really go wrong with this dress.
