The Florence is a sweet swingy top and dress with a button back detail and soft high low gathers.

All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated.

Skill level - intermediate.

Fabric suggestions - We recommend light weight fabrics with some drape like cotton, tencel or linen. If you choose something with less drape the top will have a more sculptural look.

Paper vs PDF

If you order a paper copy you will be sent a printed version of our pattern. If you select PDF you are purchasing a digital file. You will be able to download your digital files five times. We recommend that you save your files so that you have them forever. PDF's will include a tiled, an A0 copy shop file and your instructions. The tiled file can be used on any home printer, and is compatible with both A4 and US letter paper. You just need to print out the sheets and stick them together following the guide. Alternatively you can send off the copy shop file to be printed full size; we can usually recommend someone in your area. If you are in the UK we would recommend either The Fold Line or Net Printer. The instructions can either be printed at home or simply follow along on your computer or phone.
