I don’t normally wear midi skirts or dresses, but I found that this length (just cover the knees) flattering on me. It added a level of sophistication and elegance. Don’t you think? Of course, skirt lengths are easily changeable (use the lengthen/shorten lines provided, or crop it at the hem), so you can make it shorter if you’d like.

Because a midi length is my objective, I opted to make the skirt not so flare. This A-line flare is just about enough for a jersey. It’s not too heavy.

My favorite part of the Sovana Dress is the front-wrap-to-back neckline. I just love details like this.

I used a similar neckline on the Brasov and Carlsbad (in my Sew Beautiful book).

The pattern only comes in long sleeves, but really, you can just chop the sleeve off wherever you wish. Short sleeves? No problem! 3/4 sleeve, no problem! Elbow-length? No problem. I think you got the point.

You can see that my testers made the Sovana out of different fabrics. Some made it with a solid, and some made it with prints of different scales. I think my favorite is a medium-scale or small-scale floral. How about you? For me, I usually like to use a solid, so you can see the design better. Even when I am somewhat limited, I really appreciate that my testers show me their creativity in pairing fabric with the design.

Let’s take a look at their beautiful Sovana dresses!
