The Mississippi Avenue Dress or Top has a very feminine, flattering and easy style.  As a sleeveless style, it lends itself to spring and summer dressing however, it makes a great transition piece when paired with a cardigan, tights and boots. It can have a vintage look to it when sewn in a fabric such as rayon challis or something with some drape to it. It can have a more modern look to it when sewn in a crisp linen or cotton. Any way you fashion it, it's a great style.  It features a V-neckline, spaghetti shoulder ties, an elastic almost empire waist (slightly higher than the natural waistline) and has a front panel that creates a slimming and interesting design feature. There are 3 options for length - Dress C falls a little below the knee, Dress B falls above the knee and Top A falls below the high hip.

Difficulty:  Advanced Beginner

Suggested Fabric: Light-weight fabrics with some drape such as rayon challis, wool challis, cotton lawn, cotton voile, some linens, chambray, cotton madras

Notions: Matching thread, 1m of 3/8" elastic (enough for 2" less than your waist measurement) 

Size: 0-20

Please note that our online shop currently only sells fabric, elastic, and other products that are cut to measure in full metres. Its a Shopify thing and as soon as we find an awesome workaround you can count on us to make that magic happen. 

Buying fabric? Measure twice so that we can cut once! Review your pattern. Check the unit of measure (we go by meters). Add a bit of length to factor in shrinkage during prewashing. 

Buying patterns? Pattern size ranges can vary depending on the pattern, designer, and style. Review the pattern closely before purchase and check your own measurements against the pattern specifications.

Picking colours? RICK RACK does our best to accurately represent all products and colours but colours may appear different between device screens.
