ARIEL is a most delectable and perfectly fitted 12 panels dress that hits just at the knee on most, just above the knee on tall gals. The very- V of a neck, travels down to a fitted waist then to a poof of a skirt whose hem dips a bit lower in the back. The slim bodice accentuates every gal's waist with bow or knot in front or back, or no belt at all. The lovely stretch fabric makes Ariel a delight, day & nite.
*This lightweight mildly stretchy, wavy, ripply, sheer-in-spots nylon/poly blend fabric is FANTASTIC in every way.. Out of the suitcase and right on with no fuss and nearly wrinkle free. And it's hand-washable too. I have been using it for over 5 years now, in many different colors! But as i have cleaned out my fabric fellas, with only a few yards of black left, I am coveting it, as they may not be able to get me any more of it… Best to nab these beauties while you can can!*
I created this pattern and have been making this dress for 20 years! I play with the skirt length & sleeve shapes, add on a collar here and there, to work with whatever fabrics I conjure, so that you can always have 'a new' version of the dress whose supreme fit and fabric you have come to rely on for 2 decades. Others have attempted to copy & produce this baby, but these knock-offs of my dresses will never measure up to my master. And they're always mass produced. For my limited editions there's no competition.
Nylon/Lycra Hand Wash & Line Dry or Dry Clean. In a Pinch it May Also Washed Delicate & Tumble Dry Low Temp.
