Introducing the versatile Shelby pattern, a dress or romper featuring princess seams and four distinct views. Each option showcases a V-shaped neckline, a front button opening, and a back waist tie for added style and flexibility.

Views A and B offer dress variations with traditional short sleeves. View A is a chic mini dress, falling mid-thigh for a flirtatious look. Meanwhile, View B presents a longer dress, gracefully draping around the ankles for an elegant and flowing silhouette.

Views C and D, on the other hand, feature charming rompers with cap sleeves. The rompers cleverly give the illusion of a dress while providing the coverage and comfort of shorts or pants. View C is a trendy mini-length romper, hitting mid-thigh, while View D's hemline gently falls just above the ankle for a sophisticated touch.

With the Shelby pattern, you have the freedom to create various looks, whether you prefer a playful dress or a fashionable romper, tailored to your desired length. Enjoy the versatility and style this pattern offers for your wardrobe.
