An effortless, elegant style, the Fable Dress is equally at home pottering around the garden, or dressed up for an evening out.  The fit is relaxed, but not oversized, with a  princess seam bodice, gently-gathered skirt, and gloriously deep inseam pockets.  

The Fable features a functional button front, but can also slip over the head without fasteners.  With three sleeve lengths and options for both a faced or fully-lined bodice, the Fable adapts with the seasons for year-round wear. 

Optional waist ties or back bodice elastic add versatility for fluctuating weight, and provide plenty of choice for creating different looks.   

Skill level: Adventurous beginner - Intermediate
Skills you will learn:  Princess seams, set-in sleeves, gathering, in-seam pockets, (optional) bias binding.  Fitting adjustment resources included.

The fable dress

Twig &Tale give you very clear instructions and measurements for this dress. If you follow their advice and make a toile first you won’t be disappointed. I’m looking forward to making the next one, one size down with a full bodice lining. It’s very comfortable, and I love the pockets

Fable dress review

I am just finishing my first child-sized Fable dress. I made it out of a tablecloth. I made the lines version. It has been fun and easy to make. I'm very pleased with it.
