MAVEN sewing Patterns. The Joy Dress
Joy is the perfect easy-to-wear dress.
A versatile addition to your summer wardrobe, comfortable and yet smart enough for any occasion. Style with flip flops for the beach, trainers for sight-seeing or heels for cocktails on the terrace.
Your choice of fabric will mean Joy can be casual and fun or choose a luxurious silky fabric in a fabulous print to make a chic statement dress.
Joy could even be layered over a skinny t-shirt or roll neck on cooler days.
Joy is a slim A-line shape with a relaxed fit through the waist, (optional) in-seam pockets, frilled hem, and tie straps. Version B has a little more ease due to the gathering detail on the back bodice.
