 Pattern and instructions by
Simple sleeveless A-line shift dress with bust dartsand a detailed scallop shaped circle collar.
: I made this pattern to fit my size (bust83cm; waist 67cm; hips 90cm), which is usually aBurdaStyle size 36.The finished dress laid flat will be about: bust 86cm,waist 90cm, hips 100cm and length from shoulder90cm.
About enlargement
: I am by no means a profess-sional, but only self taught. Anyway, I thinkenlarging this shift dress should be quite simple byadding extra at the side seams.
: middle weight fabrics, which are a littlestiff (I used dupion silk for mine); depending onfabric width about 1.2m should be enough; somelight-weight fabric for cutting 30 circles (collar);some fusible interfacing for the armhole facing andthe scallop shaped circle collar
: I used A4 sized paper for this pattern, butit should work with smaller ones, too. Set your
printer on ‘no scaling’ or rather ‘100%’. I have also
added a little test square, which should be 10 x 10cm. Tape pattern and cut it.
: There is
seam allowance included. Iwould recommend adding 1.5cm seam allowance.1 Front piece (1x on fold)2 Back piece (2x)3 Front Facing (for armhole) (2x)4 Back Facing (for armhole) (2x)5 Circle (for collar) (30x)6 Neck Binding 4 cm x 85 cm (no pattern) (1x)
: Copy all pattern pieces onto yourfabric (take care on the grainline of pattern pieces 1and 2). Then cut the pieces. Apply fusibleinterfacing onto all armhole pieces and 15 collarcircles. Be cautious to apply the interfacing onto thewrong side of the fabric.In order to keep it simple hem all edges (exceptcollar circles) before starting to sew.Mark the real neckline as indicated on the patternwith some hand stitches and a different coloredyarn on the front and back pieces. This will help youarrange the circle collar later.
:1. Stitch bust dartstogether & pressthem downward.2. With right sides facing,pin both back pieces andstitch.Press seam allowanceapart.
