The best thing about making your own clothes is that you can make something that really fits and make you look your best.
I my “pattern closet” I do not have so many different thing however many of the can be mixed and match in different ways. I always take my time to make my clothes fit like a glove so when I can mix and match the different patterns I can get so many different versions. This dress is a combination of two patterns a no. 1 Dragør and a No. 6 København.
If you think that you also want to make a dress like this I have made a special price bundle of these two patterns. You can get it here
Then; how to you make it? I have made a sewing instruction for this version you can see it here
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
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.
NB! ad 1 cm CB on top (Pattern piece B, No. 1 Dragør) This is because you need to sew the invisible zipper at CB.
NB! also cut pattern piece B No.1 in lining
