Esther features a gorgeous gathered neckline that can be left alone, or embellished with any sewing trim of your choice. There are two lengths to choose from, top or dress. Esther also features our first ever ruched sleeve for that extra elegant touch to your top or dress. Complete the look with a beautiful ribbon tie and you will have a staple item for your wardrobe.

Please note that PDF patterns differ from traditional sewing patterns, and not all PDF designers have the same style. We prefer to give measurements for simple rectangles instead of rectangular pattern pieces to save your time, paper, ink, and tape. You will only receive pattern pieces for curved portions of the garment, and you will follow the cutting chart for the remaining pieces.
