The Hali dress and jumpsuit are comfy, stylish wardrobe staples. Both variations feature a semi-fitted wrap bodice with a back yoke and a V-neck, wrap tie closure and handy side pockets. The dress comes with a voluminous, ankle-length circle skirt and ¾-sleeves with gathered sleeve openings. The midi-length jumpsuit has an interesting construction that is a hybrid of a dress and a jumpsuit. The jumpsuit variation includes simple T-shirt sleeves.
Materials & Supplies
Choose a light to medium-weight, non-stretch fabric. Depending on the desired result, you can select either a low-drape fabric or a fabric with a little drape. Cotton, linen, Tencel and rayon shirtings or dress-weight fabrics are recommended. For the ties, choose a stable woven ribbon, such as a twill or herringbone band made of linen or cotton. If your fabric is light or drapey, interface the neckline and the pocket openings using fusible interfacing.
