    Sew Over It - Meredith Dress - Sizes 8-20

    The Meredith Dress is a versatile wrap dress, designed to be sewn in jersey. Simple yet elegant, Meredith features a wrap front with modest V neckline, as well as a neckband which helps avoid any dreaded gaping! The gathers at the shoulder yoke provide shaping and help to achieve a great fit around the bust, and the tie keeps the dress closed whilst cinching you in at the waist.

    Meredith’s very slightly A-line skirt has two hem length options (below the knee and on the knee), and the sleeve can be cut full length or three quarters to suit your preference.

    Sumptuously comfy yet elegant and stylish, Meredith is a great work staple. She looks classic in a polka dot or solid, but can equally rock a print. With her minimal seams, she’s the perfect canvas for a bright, bold larger-scale floral, geometric or abstract pattern!

    Suggested Fabrics:   Light to medium weight knit fabric with lots of drape, such as viscose jersey, cotton jersey and lighter ponte di Roma.

    Difficulty:  Advanced Beginner.
