Alice is a loose-fit top and dress that can be sewn with both woven and knit fabrics. Alice has a dropped shoulder and the short sleeve version is finished with a binding. The 3/4 sleeve version is hemmed, with a ruching detail at the lower part of the sleeve.
If you’re sewing Alice in woven fabrics you’ll finish the neckline with a facing. If you’re sewing in knit fabrics you can choose to finish the neckline with a facing or a binding.
The top is slightly A-shaped, and lower in the back. The dress’ fit around the waist is easily adjustable with the knot in the front, and the elastic along the back bodice.
Alice’s front piece is split but in the tutorial you’ll also get guidance on how to sew Alice with a whole front piece.
