The Florence Dress and Top Pattern!

Whether it's sunny or snowy where you are right now, we here at SSE are starting to think spring (even if it's just wishful thinking)! And that's why we are so excited to introduce to you the new Adult's Florence Dress and Top Pattern!

The Adult's Florence Dress and Top Pattern is a beautiful, versatile garment that is as fun as it is easy to wear. There are so many options, your choices are endless! You can choose from a princess seam version that has contouring princess seams from bust all the way down to the hemline creative a graceful feminine curve that is universally flattering. You can also choose to add tiers at the underbust and have the option of adding as few or as many tiers as you desire.

The Adult's Florence Dress and Top Pattern has multiple length options including top, tunic, above the knee, below the knee, and full maxi. You can choose from three necklines; crew, square scoop and V-neck as well as the option to line the bodice for a clean neckline. You have multiple sleeve options including tank top, a short flutter sleeve or a demi-bishop sleeve for a romantic look. The bishop sleeve can sewn either short, 3/4 or long and finished with either a cuff or elastic. And if that wasn't enough, the Florence sleeve is interchangeable with the Sulky Tee Pattern sleeve, providing you with even more choices for customization.
