Made By Rae sewing pattern. Emerald is a simple shift dress or top designed to offer comfort in the summer heat. I envision it with sandals and a hat on hot days, or layered under a warm sweater or cowl as the the seasons change and the days turn cool.
The garment is composed of four main panels and is finished with facings, which highlight the elegant V-shaped neckline and curved hem. Pockets or a sash can be added to the dress version (optional).
For maximum comfort and wearability, choose lightweight fabrics with drape to allow the bias-cut design to conform to your body. The center seam allows for some fun pattern play if you use striped or patterned fabric, or becomes a beautiful design feature on a simple solid fabric.
