The Martha dress is a contemporary update on the fit-and-flare style.

Choose from short sleeves or three-quarter length bell sleeves, with knee-length or mini hemline. It's great for twirling!

SKILL LEVEL - Improvers

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS - Light- to medium-weight fabrics, such as viscose (rayon), silk or polyester crêpe de chine, cotton lawn, chambray, broderie anglaise, double knit with little stretch, lighter weight wool. Avoid directional prints as the skirt is cut on the bias (at an angle). How about adding a lace trim to the bodice or piping the princess seams?
