The cute and comfortable Davenport Dress is the perfect throw-on and go dress.  It has full sleeves with an elastic ruffle hem as well as a shoulder flutter detail. The hem hits above the knees. The front neckline is gathered in with elastic, and the waist features a drawstring so this dress can be pulled on and off without any closures. The Davenport boasts roomy pockets, which I think is a must in all casual wear.


This pattern is suitable for all skill levels but do get in touch if you have any questions.
