Nina Lee - Mayfair

Jersey dream for all occasions.
£14.00

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.

Skill level: confident beginner/intermediate. No experience sewing with knits necessary – the pattern includes a section on ‘Tips for Sewing with Knits’.
