Sheona Dress with Pockets

I love my new Sheona dress and as a bonus, it has pockets! You can read my full tutorial and get the FREE pocket pattern piece on the AK Patterns blog here.

The Sheona has simple style lines and allows me to prominently feature fabric I love. I was careful with the floral pattern placement and really like how it appears to be climbing up the sides of my dress.

I did make a few adjustments to the pattern to get the best fit for my body shape, bringing the waist in an inch on both the front and back pattern pieces and using a French curve to grade out about 3 inches above and 4 inches below my waist. One additional adjustment I would make in the future is to add a bit more ease to the hips.

You can read all the details on how I added pockets to my Sheona dress on the AK Patterns blog here.
