From the pattern:

The Mary Quant-style minidress is an easy to wear A-line shift that can be personalised with a mix and match collection of collars, necklines, pockets and sleeves, all inspired by Mary Quant's iconic designs. You'll want to try this out more than once in lots of different fabrics and combinations!

FIT
Neat on the shoulders and bust, flaring out to an A-line shape designed to sit just above the knee.

VARIATIONS
The world is your oyster! This pattern comes with two neckline options, two pocket options, three collar finishes, and two sleeve finishes so you can mix and match to your heart's content. The dress is drafted as a classic 1960s mini that sits just above the knee - shorten if you want to show a bit more thigh, or lengthen to turn it into a more 70s style maxi-dress.

LEVEL
Advanced Beginner – if you've never tried an all-in-one neck and armhole facing, now's your chance!
