Fringe Dress Kit

This g&g Sewing Society kit includes everything you need to make a gorgeous, summery Chalk and Notch Fringe Dress or Top.

The Fringe pattern, designed for woven fabrics, has really lovely design details. Choose from a button up front bodice or a delicate notched neckline - both options pair perfectly with the gathered skirt section of the garment that has a smooth, curved hem line.

Opt for a top length or dress length with in seam pockets, and pick between an elbow sleeve with sleeve tab or shorter cuffed sleeve hem.

The fit of this dress is easily customisable with two cup sizes to choose between and an optional narrow belt or tie for more waist definition. Choose between two fabric length options below to customise the kit contents for what you need. All kits come with both dressmakers A/B and C/D cup size options printed as standard.

We have chosen a delicate animal inspired print on a soft and silky viscose fabric in 3 different colour-ways for this kit. It hangs and drapes beautifully in the looser design of this garment - perfect for breezy summer days or pairing with leggings on chillier ones.

This kit is available in sizes US 0-30 and two cup sizes; A/B and C/D.
