Boatneck Pencil Dress
The boatneck dress is a real fifties classic with a fitted bodice and a pencil skirt with a slit at the back. The neck has a subtile shape, a little less wide than a classic boatneck. You can give the neckline a sporty topstitch or leave it ‘blind’. This style is suitable for a print but also great in a plain colour (a little black dress perhaps). To emphasise the waist you can make a cute narrow belt with or without a buckle. Perfect for every season choose from short, 3/4 or long length sleeves. For a summer dress choose a single jersey knit in cotton. In Autumn, try a french terry (a light sweat fabric).
