There are two main reasons I created the Recoleta Dress pattern: 1) Do you remember the Celeste Dress that I made a while back? Well, it was a very popular pattern, and I personally also wore it a whole lot. So I want to create something with a similar silhouette with the expanded size range; 2) I am on the short side (5’3.5″ or 161.3 cm on a GOOD day) and my legs are on the shorter side. I know that a dress with a higher waistline will make me look more proportional and taller. Hence, the Recoleta Dress is born!
Yes, the Recoleta Dress comes in sizes 00 to 40 with cup sizes!
It also has two sleeve options: short or 3/4-length!
Just like the Celeste Dress, the Recoleta Dress has a side invisible zipper, but I made the dress on a more relaxed side, so some people can put on the dress without using the zipper. In fact, most of my testers did not put in the zipper at all. If your shoulders are not wide, then it’s possible that you don’t need the zipper.
This is the first time I use the notched neckline design. I discovered that I really like it. I should use this neckline more often.
Here is a recap of the Recoleta Dress:
- Options for cup sizes
- Empire waist
- Notched neckline
- Side invisible zipper
- Options for short and 3/4 length sleeves
- Designed for woven fabric
It’s always exciting to look at the beautiful garments that my testers made. They did a wonderful job!
A big “thank you” to my wonderful testers!
