Frances is a modular knit shirt and dress pattern that offers many style options, allowing you to make a collection of beautiful basics. The body silhouette ranges from a fitted hip-length shirt, a crop top that sits just above the natural waist, or a dress with a half-circle skirt, built inside-seam pockets, and an optional sash.
Choose from five neckline options: crew neck, turtle neck, or scoop neck with a high back, medium back, or a low back with ties.
Four sleeve options are also given: Cap, elbow, three-quarter, and full-length.
This pattern can be sewn on a serger or regular sewing machine. Mix and match the pattern pieces to create your own look.
