Perfect for all those holiday parties coming up, this ladies party dress pattern has lots of options so you can dress it up or down!
This beautifully finished dress is fully lined with:
- Short, knee and tea length hem options
- 2 optional netting/tulle layers,
- An optional sash with bow, plain waistband or no waist detail,
- Closures are buttons/snaps at the shoulders and a side invisible zip – perfect for nursing Moms who need to open the dress up, or for getting it on without messing your hair up!
All the seams are cleverly designed to be self-finishing or hidden. This means all the raw edges are neatly tucked away out of sight. No overlocking or serging required. That said, if you have a serger, tips are included for when and where to use it if you wish to.
The pattern is trim-free, comes in A4 or US letter size, and has layers in the PDF so you can print only the size/s you want.
This is the ladies version but it’s also available as a matching child’s pattern so you can even do matching “Mommy and Me” dresses! Get the child’s version here.
