PLEASE NOTE: This is an expansion pack which provides additional pattern pieces which supplement The Forsythe Dress pattern. You will also need to have The Forsythe Dress pattern in order to complete this garment.


This pattern expansion to the well-loved Forsythe dress offers a feminine twist on the original with beautifully draped three-quarter length bishop sleeves that are gathered into a unique shape at the cuffs. 

The panelled bodice offers opportunity for colour-blocking or pattern interplay and the buttoned front offers both practicality and visual interest. Now you can enjoy your Forsythe dress all year round.
