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.
