Demeter Dress + Top by Anna Allen

The Demeter dress and top pattern has four different variations to choose from. All views pull over the head with no closures. View A is a loose fitting dress with short set-in sleeves, bust darts, and a slight empire waistline at the front that dips back down to the natural waistline at the back. The skirt is gathered to the bodice, has inseam pockets and a deep hemline. View B is similar to view A, except it has no sleeves and one inch less wearing ease in the body as well as a longer skirt length (3”). View C and D are the companion tops to A and B. The tops are crop length (high hip) and also pull over the head with no closures. All views are oversized and have generous wearing ease. This pattern is drafted for woven non-stretch fabrics.


There are slight differences between the 00-22 and 14-32 pattern drafts. The extended range has more room in the seat as well as a curved back yoke, while the 00-22 range has a straight back yoke.
