This pattern was inspired by Hollie who just loves cats, but it works well too with no pockets or simple patch pockets! Your girl will love this dress too. Its versatile and great for the summer but also looks fabulous with a t-shirt in the colder season.
It's aimed at the confident beginner/intermediate experience level and has a gorgeous round yoke which I lined in contrast fabric.The pockets are the main attraction on this dress but you can also leave them for a different look. As an example I made a dress with a wide hem trim featuring my favourite VW van, the pattern for this is also included in the pattern.
You also receive a cheats version for the yoke in the written instructions, detailed diagrams, measurement charts and a comprehensive list with links to all the video support available. There are three length options, tunic which is above the knee, mid hip, hip and cropped top for a short fashionable top your girl will love.
If you have made a pattern of mine this is definitely upping the stakes a bit, as I added a fastening to the back. Its an easy way to fasten a garment and the technique is the same as you would use for a gentlemen's sleeve opening. The tutorials for this will help you every step of the way.
For the dress I used a soft denim and for the yoke a fine cord. The yoke lining needs to really pop, so go wild. Its a great idea to match the yoke lining and the seam finish. If you don't have a serger use bias binding to cover the rough edges. Check the website where I also show you how to make your own bias binding for the seam finish.
The pattern is available for immediate download so you can get started straight away.
Your pattern comes with all the sizes – 1-2 up to 10-12.
None of my patterns are multi sized so there is one size per file, this saves a lot of paper and confusion as to which line you have to cut.
Every pattern is hand drafted and then imported into a CAD program to make sure you have a pattern that fits and looks good too! No pattern is automatically graded or computer generated with software. Having trained as a tailor 30 years ago I know that pattern generating software can never replace the skill of a pattern drafted by hand. Try my patterns and you will love the fit. No loose armholes that are cut too low or sleeves that hang of the shoulder.
