The Mississippi Avenue Dress & Top Sewing Pattern
The Mississippi Avenue Dress or Top has a very feminine, flattering and easy style. As a sleeveless style, it lends itself to spring and summer dressing however, it makes a great transition piece when paired with a cardigan, tights and boots. It can have a vintage look to it when sewn in a fabric such as rayon challis or something with some drape to it. It can have a more modern look to it when sewn in a crisp linen or cotton. Any way you fashion it, it's a great style. It features a V-neckline, spaghetti shoulder ties, an elastic almost empire waist (slightly higher than the natural waistline) and has a front panel that creates a slimming and interesting design feature. There are 3 options for length - Dress C falls a little below the knee, Dress B falls above the knee and Top A falls below the high hip. This is a beginner level pattern. Sizes 0 - 20
