For the top, I have used the version 3 from the free pattern. It was in the mail no. 4 you received when you signed up for the newsletter. For the bottom, I have used the skirt from No. 6 København.
The pattern pieces fit on top of each other, but to get the darts aligned on the back, you have to move the dart on the back piece. See how here.
It is important to choose a fabric that has a nice soft drape. For this dress, I have chosen a light wool. Viscose will also work well with drapey styles. The same goes for silks, microfibers, rayon, and cupro.
You will need:
- Fabric 110 cm wide
- Size 34-48/UK 6-20/US 2-16 3.3 mtr.
- Fabric 140 cm wide
- Size 34-40/UK 6-12/US 2-8 2.2 mtr.
- Size 42-48/UK 14-20/US 10-16 2.9 mtr.
- 1 invisible zipper 40 cm long
- 50 cm interfacing (that works with your fabric)
- 1 big button or brooch decorating the neckline.
I recommend that you always make a muslin before you cut the fashion fabric, to make sure your finished garment will fit you perfectly. Se fitting here and here
Each pattern piece is marked with a capital letter. On the cutting layout plan, you’ll find the same capital letters so that you can easily see which pattern pieces to use for the
version you’ve chosen.
