This is a simple shift dress with a feminine hem detail. I've rated it as intermediate, though as usual with my designs it doesn't have too many difficult details. The fit is slightly loose on the waist but there are back darts to give the dress some shape.
You will need the following basic skills:
•Inserting a zipper
•Attaching a facing
Another special skill for this pattern is hemming a curved edge. There's an easy method which is well illustrated in the instructions. I will also share a tutorial here on the blog soon!
