Angie is an easy-breezy modern day dress with classic appeal. The figure-flattering bodice features an elasticized waist (read – no zippers, no buttons)! And guess what???? Pockets!!!!!! Who doesn’t love side pockets for keys and change? We’ve also included cutting lines for multiple neckline depths (high, regular, and low) so you can get a range of looks from this one versatile pattern. Accessorize the waistline with a sash (instructions included) or your favorite belt. Wear alone as a sundress, or pair with a cardigan in the chillier months. This dress can also be made a bit roomy and worn jumper style over a turtleneck or button-up top.

I just finished making the Angie in the light blue Eloise for my little sister this afternoon. I was amazed by how quickly it came together! It took less than 3 hours, including making lunch and snacks for my toddlers. I LOVE yjat it doesn’t have a zipper. I really like the lower neckline of the red one and will try to make another one after dinner. Easiest. Pattern. Ever.
I’ve finished one Angie, and I have immediate plans for two more. It’s an easy sew and very comfortable to wear. The first one I’ve made is from an embellished batik I had in my stash. Fabric yardage constrained me to either pockets or matching bias binding. This time I opted for the bias tape, but I will definitely allow for pockets in the next dress. I’m full-busted, but narrow shouldered, and as is usual in a sleeveless garment, I had some gaposis in the the armhole. The problem was easily solved by adding an additional front bodice dart that originates in the armseye and ends at the point of the original dart. When I tried the completed bodice on, I saw there wasn’t going to be a lot of additional “fitting” provided by the elastic in the waist so I opted to finger pleat the skirt instead of gathering it for a smoother look around my middle and to use the sash to cinch the waist. I used some “serger strings” to make carriers for the belt at the side seams.
This is a great little dress. Casual enough for the grocery store, but with the right fabric and the right accessories, it could go out to dinner easily. The pattern is easy to follow, and its simplicity makes it easy to alter for the perfect fit.
