Are you are looking for a fast and easy summer dress sewing pattern with a beautiful result? Yes? This is the one for you! If you are always sewing for children and avoid sewing for yourself, this simple and chic top & dress sewing pattern will help you ignite your self-sewing obsession :) Go for a sophisticated look with a silky fabric in a solid colour and adjustable strap (perhaps with a high-low hem) or try a fun, breezy look with the knee-length dress in a printed rayon or voile. The top option in particular is quick to make and looks great teamed with jeans, shorts or a cute skirt. Add another ruffle for double the fun :) (and a cardigan or jacket for cooler weather).
The Mama Leilani Dress & Top PDF sewing pattern for women is a pretty, on-trend top & dress with a single or double ruffle overlay at the neckline. It is designed for woven (non-stretch) fabrics. The dress can be made with either a standard (knee length) or a stylish high-low (3/4 length) hemline. The dress pulls over the head and ties with narrow shoulder straps. There are no buttons or zips to fuss with, making it the perfect beginner dress: quick and easy to sew. There is also a full photo tutorial for making Adjustable Straps with bra-style ring and slider hardware. The pattern also has a tutorial for making a professional looking narrow hem as a finish for both the overlay and the main hem.
The sewing pattern comes in multi-size format from Sizes US 2 (Aust/UK 6) (Eur 34) through to US 16 (Aust/UK 20) (Eur 48).
The professionally designed PDF digital sewing pattern includes an easy to follow tutorial with detailed diagrams and full sized colour coded pattern pieces with the seam allowances included. Both imperial (inches) and metric (centimetres) measurements are specified. There are body measurements and finished measurements charts to help you choose the correct size and line drawings (design sketches) and a yardage chart to help you pick the perfect option and fabric.
The pattern format is suitable for both A4 and American Letter print sizes and it has a measuring guide to make sure you have printed the pattern at the correct size. It has also been carefully designed to minimise the amount of cutting and taping required to assemble the pattern.
