You SEW Girl! by Nicole Mallalieu PDF PATTERN DOWNLOAD
Printshop format and 30 page tiled A4/Letter size for home printing. 8 page instruction booklet.
This simple design is easy to make and SO comfortable to wear in drapey knit fabrics. Fitting a wide range of sizes (Australian 8-18) and body-types, the dress hides a multitude of sins and looks as elegant over tights and boots in winter as it does cool in summer.
This pattern is a great confidence-booster for anyone new to sewing knits.
Use fabrics with fluid drape for best effect. Jersey knits with viscose, modal, silk or wool content are lovely... but try a cheaper polyester or cotton-lycra for your first attempt. When purchasing fabric, buy two times your required dress length.
YOU WILL NEED
2.7 to 3 metres (3-3¼ yds) of medium-to-lightweight knit fabric (preferably with fluid drape)
overlocker/serger or a sewing machine with a stretch stitch.
Dressmaker’s tracing wheel and carbon (optional, but handy!)
