Altea Dress

What kind of pattern is the Altea dress?

This gorgeous midi dress is inspired by the Mediterranean coast. The strappy bodice is cut to the hip line, creating the visual effect of a low waist that elongates the torso.
In order to flatter the silhouette of the bodice when creating this pattern, we have chosen to make a centre panel at the front and back and have completed it with a side panel with stitching at the waist, which allows for a better fit of the dress.
The skirt is gathered from the hip line and the straight cut makes it easy to adjust the length of the dress.
