- DRESS FABRIC:
Most light to mid weight woven fabrics will suit this dress.
We recommend linen, cotton and cotton blends for summer.
Our orange/mustard floral single fabric dress is made up in cotton weave (up-cycled cotton duvet cover we found at a local Thrift store) and the fabric colour contrast dress in a mid-light weight linen. The blue dress is also an up-cycled cotton sheet from the Thrift shop.
The purple long sleeve dress is sewn from a metalic fabric which gives it an interesting texture.
*Please also note that all (new) fabric should be pre-washed in case of shrinkage. Some fabrics will not shrink but 100% cotton,linen and rayon are almost guaranteed to shrink. It doesn't hurt to be safe and remove any dodgy chemical build up that may have occurred during printing anyway.
Please note that the size chart is not the finished garment measurements.
We recommend that you also measure your body length and compare to the finished garment length measurements given. To achieve a perfect, individual fit, you may need to adjust the patterns length (instructions included).
Suitable for Beginners. This dress is able to be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger) to neaten the seams.
