From Muna & Broad:

The Melba Dress is perfect for lazy summer days. It’s equally at home by the pool or at a restaurant with its generous, relaxed proportions and elegant finishes. It features a V-neck, our signature sleeve bands, inseam pockets, and a beautiful mitred hem with high-low side splits. Sew it in linen for your new favourite summer dress or in a drapey sandwashed silk for easy elegance.

Suggested Fabrics: This pattern is designed for use with a wide variety of light-medium weight woven (non-stretch) fabrics. We suggest light-medium weight linen, cotton lawn, cotton poplin/shirting, silk noil, silk satin, sandwashed silk, charmeuse, crepe, crepe de chine, tencel, cupro, viscose/viscose blends, or rayon/rayon blends. As with most garment sewing, we do not recommend the use of quilting cottons.
