This beautiful dress is a combination of the sewing pattern No. 1 Dragør and No. 5 Århus. When I develop a new sewing pattern, I always try to make a pattern that can be combined with other HTDF sewing patterns. I love when you can mix a sewing pattern with others, because it gives you so many possibilities. In this blog post I will show how you can make a dress like this yourself. I have also made a FREE printable pattern piece for the bow. That, you also get here.

in the web shop, I have made a bundle with both patterns for a special price.

Choose the right size for the skirt

When you choose the size for the skirt, go up a size. If you fit a size 42 with the blouse, use a size 44 for the skirt. If you fit a size 48, take the skirt from size 48 and add 1.5 cm to each side seam.

Fitting and adjustments:

I recommend that you always make a muslin before you cut the fashion fabric, to make sure your finished dress will fit you perfectly. Find the fitting guide Here
