The Hexham is a dress with options! For this one, I used the Turtleneck (T6), the longest sleeve, and View B (the cocoon option).
Fabric & consumption The pattern calls for 2.3m of 150cm at my size. That’s pretty accurate but you will have bits leftover if you’re making the crewneck version or the short sleeves (excellent if you’ve got fabric which would make great undies)! This fabric is a heavy ribbed poly/rayon/spandex which has 2 way stretch (it wouldn’t make good undies though). Because it doesn’t stretch downwards, the fabric does a good job of maintaining the shape of the cocoon hem.
I’ve got a few more versions that I’ve made of this very-versatile-dress which I’ll share over the week!
