Pattern Description: The Nova Midi Dress is a slip-on sleeveless tiered dress that works well in both a print or plain fabric. If you prefer a shorter style, then just leave off the lower tier, but please check your personal length preferences and add equal length to both tiers if lengthening.
The bodice is doubled layered (see tutorial here) and has no fasteners.
The Nova dress really versatile as it can be paired with heels, slides or styled for everyday with a classic sneaker.
Sample: Our model wears a size 12 in Minuet Linen. We skipped the double bodice and finished the neckline and armholes with Liberty bias binding.
