The Ila Dress Testing

Looking for awesome seamstresses (sewists?) to test the Ila dress pattern. Go HERE to sign up!

The Ila dress is a A-line dress that features a shaped yoke, front panel and in-seam pockets.  There are two sleeve options to choose from - a short and a long sleeve. It can be made with or without the front panel. The design is perfect for color blocking or piping! 

It's designed to be used with woven fabrics, such as poplin, quilting cotton, double gauze, corduroy, etc. 

Intermediate sewing skills are required, though adventurous beginners are welcome too! Please, keep in mind this is a pretested version, and changes will be made for the final version. Please join Facebook Coffee + Thread patterns group for more info.
