The Washington Dress is fun, unique, comfortable, and majorly hack-able! The Washington combines a cup-sized knit bodice with a knit yoke and woven skirt, which means you have huge creative potential. It’s a great dress for beginners, or more experienced sewists who want to whip up a new dress wardrobe in no time. There are three sleeve lengths and so many fabric opportunities that it’s a all-seasons pattern.
