The Eye Catcher Collection is full of shimmering neutrals and graphic patterns that will have you covered for summer, from lunch dates to a day at the office. This selection of plus-size patterns has a timeless, elegant style.
Form-fitting dresses for summer are here, plus a pair of ‘go anywhere’ trousers and a breezy high-low blouse. A figure-conscious sheath dress or unexpectedly-cut blouse are the new warm-weather staples, and you’ll find them all in the Eye Catcher Collection. Make these patterns your own by teaming them with summery solids or mod prints.
The Editor’s Pick from this collection is the Ruched Dress pattern. Ruching down the front draws attention to curves and creates an alluring sweetheart neckline to this 3/4 sleeve dress. Find a stretch floral to give this dress more of a retro bombshell look, or keep it in a solid color for work. The square neckline is mirrored at the back for a pretty portrait effect.
