The Origami Dress and Top


A deceptively simple style to make and exceptionally flattering to wear. 

Designed to be made in stretch jersey fabrics. The asymmetric twist at the centre front, cleverly drapes and falls in soft folds, while the drop-shoulder creates a subtly elegant batwing effect.

Options are given for long or short sleeves or no sleeves for a capped sleeved effect

Fabric suggestions

Light to medium weight jersey fabrics including cotton, viscose or silk with some Lycra or Elastane content. The sleeveless version can also be made in some woven fabrics if they have stretch and fluidity including crinkle fabrics.

Love the simplicity of this pattern. So quick and simple though it does not appear so to others! Here in a silk.

The one area that I found needed some adjustment was the back neck which I had to enlarge for this fabric.
