The versatile Lichen Duster can be worn as a lightweight coat, wrap dress, or robe - a true capsule wardrobe workhorse! Its shawl collar, princess seams, unique pockets, four skirt gores and hand-stitched facings make it a beautiful heirloom piece. Style it over dresses and jumpsuits, or jeans and tees. Use your own belt or wrap the included fabric belt around your waist. The Lichen can be made with a sweeping high-low hem or a straight hem.
Depending on the fabric you choose, this duster can be worn in cold or warm weather. It is unlined, constructed with front and back facings of the same fabric. Mid-weight linen or yarn-dyed cotton is recommended for all-season wear. More advanced sewists can branch out and choose mid-weight wool or even silk or silk velvet.
The pattern includes sizes 0-30
Skill level: Intermediate (the designer notes that if you have sewn up the Hinterland Dress, you should be equipped to sew the Lichen).
