From Elbe Textiles:

The Duplantier Dress is a babydoll style dress with two different sleeve options. Both views feature a gathered skirt with in-seam pockets. The bust seam panelling on the bodice allows for customisation with trim detailing or different fabrics. A subtle V shaped skirt cuts across the lower bust, dropping down to the waist at the side seams. Ties are set into the side seams to cinch the back of the dress in.

Suggested Fabrics: 

  • Main Fabric - Medium weight woven fabrics with good drape. Tencel, rayon, washed linen, silk noil, soft cottons etc.
  • Lining - Light to medium weight woven fabric.

Sizes & Fitting Notes: Available in a B cup and a combined C/D cup, in sizes A to N. 
This pattern has been drafted for a height of 5’7" and will finish at mid thigh. The bodice has two cup size options - a B cup and a C/D cup. The panels around the bust are gently shaped and cut away on an angle, across the bust (not underneath the whole bust). This design is semi fitted up top and flowy from the bust down. It is recommend to make a toile first to work out any fitting alterations you may need, before cutting into your chosen fabric.
