Ilma Smock Dress & Top

The Ilma sewing pattern includes two variations: an airy off-the-shoulder mini dress, and a cute A-line top. Both variations feature a wavy, tiered hemline and an elasticated neckline. The dress variation has wrist-length puff sleeves with gathered sleeve openings. The top comes with ruffle shoulder straps. You can also make a sleeveless dress with shoulder straps, or sew the top with puff sleeves and off-the-shoulder neckline. Both variations are maternity friendly.
