Hughes Dress Paper Pattern - Friday Pattern Company


The Hughes Dress is the perfect everyday dress. It features princess seams, sleeves that gather at the cap, and a gorgeous scoop neckline. It buttons (or snaps) up the front and has an adjustable lace-up tie in the back. This pattern comes with options to cut it as a peplum top, above-the-knee length dress, or midi dress. The Hughes Dress is designed to be beautiful and flattering with design elements that make it comfortable and easy to wear.

You will get a different look depending on the fabric you select. A drapey rayon or silk will give a more elegant dressy look, while a more sturdy fabric like a linen will give you a gorgeous everyday dress.
