How are things going? If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen me asking if anyone was interested in me releasing this as a free download. Well there was so much interest, I thought I would get this up asap!
I'm going to keep this intro short + sweet. I love how easily this dress went together. I made it for my daughters halloween costume and out of some old lining fabric I had lying around. Which is why it looks a little wrinkly :) But hopefully you can see past the wrinkles and get loads of use out of this simple pattern!
This style is super timeless and can be made a fancy or as causal as you like.
I hope you enjoy and leave a comment how which fabric you would love to make this out of!!
- 1-2 yards of Fabric (Woven)
- Buttons or Zipper
- 1 Dress Front out of main fabric
- 1Dress Front out of lining fabric ( I used the same fabric for both)
- 2 Dress Backs out of main fabric
- 2 Dress Backs out of lining Fabric
- 1 Skirt piece (recommended skirt measurements are in the download)
The Seam Allowance for this pattern is 1/2"
Sew shoulder seams together. Repeat for the lining. Press your seams open!
Flip open your side seam on the dress front and back. Place them together matching the armhole seam. Sew straight across, flip to the right side and press flat. Repeat for the other side seam.
***This part can be a little confusing to read, so I found this great video by TELAFANTE on Youtube that shows exactly what to do starting at 3:00 minutes, though I would recommend watching the whole video because it's so well done!
