    Default Does anyone know the style/cut of this dress?

    I want to make a couple of loose fitting summer dresses (for my post baby body!) and I'm not sure what the style or cut of the dress is called for me to find a pattern.

    Below is a link for the style I'm talking about (mine would be less frilly!) I don't want it to taper in at the waste at all. The site calls it an empire dress but I disagree because I thought they came in under the breast and then went out.

    Does anybody know? Many thanks.

    Yeah, I thought that too but when I do a google search they're all very tight fitting. Thought there might be another name... perhaps it's just a different type of shift dress. Thanks.

    The part at the top is called a yoke I think.

    I googled yoke dress pattern and found this, it's out of print though

    It's normally covered by smock or trapeze, depending on the age of the pattern. Both indicate a bodice-less style.

    I'd go to spotlight and look through their MacCalls books and then google pattern numbers if you were looking for online cheapies/freebees.
