At least 7 dress variations from one pattern. This ingenious modular pattern system makes it possible to sew a dress for every shape, occasion and personal style. Depending on which version you choose, this fabulous pattern will accommodate a bit of tummy or wider hip.
“That’s Else” or the “Joggingversion” with hood and thumbholes functions as a comfy knockaround-the-house-dress or something you would wear while running errands. The “Else #black” will rival Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress. “Else #blue” in a lightweight rayon jersey would make a great option for a night out. “Else maritim” or “sand.und.meer” are perfect for a stroll on the beach. And last but not least the “Else summerblues” with short sleeves would be a lovely choice for a romantic summer evening!
In addition there even are some free downloads for a skater skirt, inseam pockets and another hood available that make the Else even more variable.
The dress is easy to sew even for beginners.

High stretch ribbing for hem and cuff band.
In general, I suggest a strip of lightweight tricot interfacing ironed in at the shoulder seam and or the armhole. You can also use Prym- Dritz Stay tape.
