A simple A-line cut dress with a wide-cut, dropped shoulder. The Manon is designed to be the ultimate dress, easy and comfortable to wear on it’s own or as part of the layered look. Each dress is a one-off combination of colour blocks patched together in reclaimed textiles. Neck and arm shapings, length and the size of the pocket vary slightly every time I make a Manon. I take the time to let the new dress evolve from the original pattern.
The Bethea is a simple combination of three colour tones, black and very dark grey, cream and pale blue, in linen and a cotton mix fabric.
There is a handstitched visible mend near the deep, wide v-neck opening. The pockets are a good comfortable size.
The Manon Bethea is listed as a size 3. It is a generous 72 cm measured from side to side under the arm openings. The width at the widest point of the shoulder is 94cm. Width at the hem is 97cm. Length is 103cm. Dimensions can be seen on the last image.
