Park Bench Charlesbank Park pattern is a dress that has 4 pie shaped gores in the skirt with a slightly curved & raised front waist, with optional bust tucks.
The length of the skirt is your choice. The sleeves can be made with or without ruffles. Made without the ruffles, this is my favorite "little black dress". The armholes of this dress are large and designed for comfort. The purpose of the bodice lining is to solve the problem of undergarment exposure. When you raise your arm, the lining (not your bra) will show. the lining is cut on the bias so it will contour to your body and fit comfortably.
This dress is designed to have 6"-8" of ease.
