The Sirocco is a breezy swing Top/Dress made for woven fabrics. The feminine bell-shaped sleeves and the high-low hem add a touch of whimsy to this style. The Top is perfect paired with casual trousers for a more formal look, and the Dress is great for those days when you want to look stylish but still be comfortable. It comes together quickly and is suitable for adventurous beginners. There are no closures.
This is a confident beginner friendly pattern.
