Daphne Maxi Dress

The Daphne Maxi Dress has a high empire waistline, is fitted over the bust, features short puff sleeves, and a long flowy skirt.

This pattern is perfect for pattern hacking, as you can easily exchange the puff sleeves for straps or lengthen the puff sleeve to a ¾ sleeve. It is also very easy to shorten the skirt to a midi or mini length or even to a peplum top if desired. The bustier of the Daphne pattern with a simple gathered skirt would also look gorgeous. The options are endless.
