ARIELLA is the cutest lil dress ever! A flirty A-line shorty that hits well above the knee, a perfectly fitted 12 paneled bodice & a very- V of a neck. You'll turn heads in this baby! And the fit is fit for every body type, anytime, anywhere. You can wrap the belt around twice & knot her, once around for a bow 0r no belt at all. The lovely stretch fabric makes Ariella a super 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.
