Women’s California Dresses & Peplum Top (XS-5X)
The California Dress & Peplum pattern is inspired by summer and Southern California beaches. Dresses are not only a summer staple for style, but they are comfortable for wearing in the summer heat. This pattern includes 4 different lengths, ankle-length maxi, both above and below the knee length dresses and a peplum top that is great with a pair of bermuda shorts or capris. As a bonus, the maxi length also offers a hi-low option and has directions right on the pattern piece for lengthening it into a floor-sweeping length. Not only are there the 4 lengths, but this unique bodice is reversible! That’s right, you can wear it with the scoop neck or the faux-halter style in the front. Last but not least, it has an elasticized waistline that can be worn alone or mix it up with a cute wide or skinny belt in a contrasting color. With the flowing knit fabric, multiple length options, and reversible bodice this is bound to become a wardrobe staple. As a bonus it also includes 2 pages of directions for adding nursing friendly straps. This women’s dress and top comes in 10 sizes from XS-5X.
