If you want a dress with a fun, floaty silhouette, sew the Benning dress. This V-neck dress has a relaxed fit and a two-tiered skirt, perfect for playing with color-blocking, prints, and textured fabrics.
The waist seam hits about 2” above the waist, and two tiers are gathered below. Sew Benning in lightweight or medium-weight wovens, like chambray, linen, cotton lawn, batiste, shirting, double gauze, and rayon challis.
Cora is wearing a size 8 Benning dress with the dart lowered and 1" added to both skirt pieces. Her measurements are 37", 31 1/2", 42 3/4", and she is 5'9".
