Applepicker Dress Pattern - Sew Different

The Pattern:

The Applepicker Dress is a classic, tiered dress (or buffet dress, as the GBSB would describe it). However, the difference, combining both comfort and elegance – the best of both worlds!

The bodice has bust darts – this isn’t always necessary in a stretch fabric but it make for a better fit with fabrics that only have a small amount of stretch or that are a little more structured (such as a ponte de roma). You have the option of cap sleeves or long sleeves.

The bottom half is made of two gathered tiers creating a full and floaty skirt with spacious in-seam pockets.
