From Blank Slate Patterns:

The Verbena is a modern tiered dress pattern for stretch knits, and it will have everyone asking where you bought it. A circle tier creates great drape with minimal bulk at the waist. Wear Verbena at this length as a peplum, or add the gathered lower tier with an exposed ruffle for a twirl-worthy dress.

Verbena features: 

  • Scoop or V neckline
  • Snug fit through shoulders, bust, waist, and sleeves
  • Peplum top or knee-length tiered dress
  • Invisible elastic reinforcement at the slightly above-waist seam
  • Short, elbow, 3/4, and long set-in sleeve options
  • For light- to medium-weight knit fabrics with four-way stretch only (DBP or cotton/spandex recommended)
