The Giselle Dress is a semi-fitted but casual and contemporary midi sheath dress. It features a double darted bodice, T-shirt length sleeves, and a sweet round neckline. It’s shaped through the waist and hip with panels in the skirt, into which you can insert an optional cheeky split. It closes at the centre back with an invisible zip and keyhole opening, and the neckline is finished neatly with bias binding. Giselle has a mid-length hem, but of course you can hem it wherever you like to suit you.
Super versatile, it’s all in the fabric choice and styling with Giselle. Wear yours at the weekend, to work, for a fun evening out – she’ll even look the part at a special occasion! Keep it simple and striking in a solid fabric, choose a ditsy floral for a casual day look, or go all out with a big bold print. Giselle makes a great canvas to show off that special fabric.
A perfect base for a bit of pattern hacking, you can easily shorten or lengthen the sleeves and skirt hems, make just the skirt, or even change the skirt completely. How about creating a gathered skirt from a simple rectangle of fabric for a completely different look?
