PLEASE NOTE: this pattern is a digital (PDF) sewing pattern.
This breezy top or dress is a quick warm-weather sew! The Bianca pattern features a notched neckline and a flattering gathered waist. Variations include a choice of elastic casing or shirring at the waist, and options for either closed side seams or side vents.
Inspiration & resources: visit the Bianca Page on Rae's blog!
Recommended woven fabrics: lightweight cotton and linen blends such as voile, rayon challis, shot cotton, shirting, double gauze, lawn, and broadcloth. Bianca is especially flattering when made with fabrics that have a nice drape! (see yardage chart)
Recommended knit fabrics: choose a stable knit such as interlock or jersey with less than 30% stretch. [Note: To check stretch, cut a 10" long strip of knit, cutting across the width of the fabric (this is the direction of most stretch) and stretch it as far as it will comfortably stretch. A knit with 30% or less stretch will stretch to no more than 13" total]. (see yardage chart)
Sizes: six women’s sizes, XS-XXL. (see sizes and finished measurements)
File includes: full-sized pattern pieces (including seam allowances) in both print-at-home and copy shop formats.
