Showcasing Summer with the Phaedra Drape Dress

Fresh off the stand at our London based design studio, the Phaedra Drape is a soft, light dress that will become a staple for every summer wardrobe. This timeless cut drape effortlessly swathes over the body from the shoulders downward, with an A-line that envelops the wearer for a comfortable yet complementary fit. The perfect pattern for floaty or sheer materials - as shown in our sample using sand-washed silk for the top and chiffon for the body of the dress - adding thicker opaque panelling will allow for more creative colour and styling options.

CREATIVE TIPS

This beautiful pattern is visually deceptive, often looking far more complicated to construct that it actually is. It is a straight-forward pattern that can be constructed quickly for intermediate sewers and a rewarding challenge for novice sewers nonetheless. Use stiffer materials like cotton for a more A-line visual cut, or for a more structurally-styled silhouette. Intermediate sewers could opt for sheer chiffon or crepe satin, to create even more drape and a suitably more delicate style.
