Kilafors is a gorgeous and easy-to wear dress with supreme fit. No buttons or zippers, in an airy A-line, or trapeze style. Fits close to the body in the shoulders and loose around the hips. A raised collar in back, and a deep V in front. The sleeves have a normal fit, and the sleeve caps are raised and narrowed a little bit, with 2 pleats giving shape and room. The dress can be made with cute extended welt pockets, or no pockets. Full dress length and tunic length is included in the pattern.
Some of the pretty and feminine details: a two-part rounded yoke in the back, petal (or tulip ) shaped, gathered and extended welt pockets plus short petal shaped sleeves. There is a definite retro feeling to it, both the 40´s and the 70's are clearly visible as style inspiration! The neckline is elegant, and the overall shape is flattering and easy to wear. The choice of details and material decides if this will be the everyday practical work dress, or an elegant thing for a special evening. Your styling will determine what the dress will feel like in the end!
