Introducing the new Bluegingerdoll pattern the Odette dress!
As usual with each new pattern release i am excited to finally be able to share it with you all. Odette is a very welcome addition to the Bluegingerdoll pattern gang, and a elegant and glamorous one at that.
'Odette is a one of a kind dress for your wardrobe. A fitted, fully lined bodice featuring a bateau 'V' neckline with a distinctive contrasting insert that frames the face.
The waistband highlights the waistline along with a seven gored skirt that skims the hips and has just the right amount of flare, as well as in-seam pockets for added practicality.
Your choice of three sleeve variations:
View A - Sleeveless, View B- Short sleeve and View C - 3/4 sleeves with complimenting cuffs.'
My favorite design feature of the Odette dress is the distinctive bodice insert a the neckline. Teamed with a subtle bateau neckline shape which beautifully frames the face, not only is the insert a cool design feature but its also a feature that allows to show of your individual creative talents AND also allows to create a few different contrasting inserts on the one Odette dress so you basically get a whole new dress each time. Simply sew up a few contrasting inserts and button up each new one onto your Odette and you're set. You can also simply take out the contrasting insert and wear your Odette with a flattering and feminine bateau 'V' neckline.
The sleeveless option
The short sleeve option
