  Colette Patterns 1025 Laurel
Looking for a stash-buster that will work with a wide range of fabrics and nearly any print? This chic and simple shift dress is easy to sew, astoundingly versatile, and comfortable to wear year-round. Edges are finished with bias tape, cutting down fabric requirements while letting you play with color and print combinations. Try a contrasting binding, or binding made from your self fabric. Bound edges also give a clean look for sheer fabrics. The fit is semi-loose with a fitted bust and back darts to keep the shape streamlined. The absence of front seams or waist darts makes Laurel an ideal choice for prints that normally may be difficult to work with, such as stripes, plaids, or large scale florals. Version 1 includes yardage and instructions for underlining, so you may use sheer or lace fabrics. Version 2 includes menswear-style patch pockets. Version 3 features classic 1960s style gathered cuffs. Version 4 is an easy pullover blouse with no closures. Plus, download our free bonus ebooklet with instructions for nine more detail variations! These extra ideas are a fantastic jumping off point for your own creative interpretations of this classic and easy style.
