The Flexi Shift Dress is a loose fitting pull-on-over the-head shape that you can customise to suit your style. You have the choice of oversized patch pockets or discreet in-seam pockets. Select either a round or a V neckline. Make it either sleeveless, with cap sleeves or with three quarter length sleeves. There is also the option of an integrated belt (fixed into back darts to stop it slipping.) There are lengthen /shorten lines on the body of the dress so you can adjust to suit your height. No zip needed. 

Level: Very Easy   Time: 2.5 hours

Fabric type: suitable for most medium weight fabrics such as denim, cotton, chambray, double knit, velvet, linen, soft drill and twill corduroy and lightweight wools.
