Skullduggery Dress, Tee & Sweatshirt

Regular price $11.27

Unit price per 

Size

An easy to sew dress, tee & sweatshirt for all seasons.

Fun & versatile, this dress/tee comes in both long and short sleeve options. Mix a knit front with a woven back (recommended cotton jersey T shirting front) and contrasting neck, sleeve and hembands. The dolman sleeve makes it super quick and easy to sew - and no, you don't need an overlocker/serger.

The pattern comes with a range of applique templates - entirely optional - but fun to sew on a sleeve, back or front of your garment.

PATTERN FEATURES

  • Easy to sew (Beginners 2/5 - more experienced sewers will sew this up in no time) 
  • No overlocker or serger needed*
  • Womens sizes 6-22 (Au/NZ)
  • Sew with contrasting fabrics (knit front/woven back) for a fun and unique look - or use the same fabric for the bodice and contrast the sleeve and neckband.
  • Relaxed comfortable fit
  • 16 modern and stylish applique templates for you to embellish your top (optional)
  • No overlocker needed (zig zig or stretch works just fine with light knit fabrics)
  • Dolman sleeve
  • Curved or straight hem
  • Help on Blog for sewing knit and stretch fabrics
  • Use the Adobe layers feature to only print your size (eliminating unnecessary lines and markings)
  • Simple instructions with clear photographs showing construction steps.

STYLE OPTIONS:  

  • DRESS - long or short sleeve
  • TOP - long or short sleeve

FABRIC

Please refer to the FABRIC REQUIREMENT CHART as one of the last images on this product listing. You can magnify this image if viewing it on a mobile phone whilst in a fabric store.

KNIT front: Cotton T shirting is perfect
WOVEN back : Most light to mid weight woven fabrics will suit this garment (viscose rayon, silk, polyester crepe, cotton and linen)

We recommend rayon, silk, polyester, light weight linen, cotton and cotton blends for summer. Heavier weight fabric and long sleeve options is perfect for cooler temperatures.  We also recommend putting the jersey knit fabric on the front (to allow for more movement/stretch over the bust) and the woven on the back.

Sample images:

Dress: 100% cotton jersey front, rayon back and cotton ribbing for bands

Long sleeve top (mid weight): Blue/red striped sleeve with 100% light weight cotton jersey knit front, woven rayon back and 95% cotton 5% elastane sleeves and neckband (curved turn up hem). 

Short sleeve tee: Mid weight jersey cotton front & back with embellished cross (rayon print). Turn up straight hem. 

Long sleeve top (heavy weight): The blue long sleeve (winter weight) is shown with a 100% heavier weight jersey cotton knit and 95% cotton 5% elastane sleeves and neckband.

DIFFICULTY

Confident beginner.

WHAT DO I GET WITH MY PURCHASE?

Please note you are purchasing a digital pattern that will be sent directly to your email inbox after payment. You can print this pattern at home on A4 or US letter-sized paper or take it to a print shop for large scale printing (AO size). *You will not receive a hard copy printed pattern.*

Instant download available immediately after checkout includes:

1. Instructions

2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)
For printing in A4 or US Letter on a home printer. Printing at home is the most cost-effective, and sticking your pattern tiles together to make your full size pattern is easy. Further information for printing at home can be found in our Resources section here. 

3. AO Pattern file
AO is a large scale file designed to be printed at a Print Copy Shop. You cannot print this on your home printer as it is too big. If you choose to use this large file you will pay extra to have it printed but you do not have to stick anything together.

You can use the ADOBE LAYERS FEATURE to open the PAH pattern file and print only the size you need (and eliminate the "noise" of the unwanted sizes). You can also use the URL and bookmark links within the file to quickly access information and support. Download Adobe Reader for free (for Windows and Mac) here.

    Review of Skullduggery dress from a canadian

    Terrible 1. When ordering there was no mention of American sizing just NZ 2. Because of this my fault I ordered the wrong size 3. So now I have to enlarge the pattern 1/2 inch all around 4. I took the pattern to a print shop to have it printed - $20 plus your cost around $20 . Now it’s almost $40! Add the material close $60 total. I think I could have boughten a dress ‍ 5. The sewing instructions were not the best!

    The Sewing Revival

    Hi Joanne, The sizes are clearly stated as NZ (refer product listing) and the equivalent in US sizing is also clearly stated on all the size charts and fabric requirement chart (last product images) - and also under the "Size and Fitting" tab at the bottom of each product page). Your pattern and instructions also list both sizing as is all the pattern sizes (and the key for the size chart). I am sorry you missed all these signposts. We do not recommend "enlarging" as grading rules (ie- they places a pattern enlarges between sizes) is not consistent all over the pattern piece (for example your shoulders do not increase by the same amount as your bust between sizes). We recommend only printing in black and white to keep your printing costs to a minimum (At the prices you state I have an inkling you have printed in colour). We pride ourselves on the instructions and this is a simple sew. We honestly welcome any feedback on how we can improve the instructions so please contact us directly at info@sewingrevival.co.nz with your specific issues and/or recommendations for improvement so we can address them if necessar y.

    Was easy to order but printing it came out a bit bigger but that’s no worries, I haven’t been shopping for fabrics yet, only 2 fabric shops in Hamilton except for Spotlight and I’m not into polyester

    Skullduggery Dress Pattern

    I have been delighted with this pattern. It is very easy and quick to make and can be completed in a variety of fabrics like Knits and woven. I have made one in Knit and two with woven fabric and knit rib trims. Love it.

    Quick sew with a great result

    The pattern was very easy to follow and gave clear instructions. I made the dress with a Liberty stretch front and linen back and am really happy with the outcome. I didn’t have to adjust the pattern, it is true to seize and a good fit.

    Great easy pattern

    I found your patterns easy to make and follow. I used a 4 thread overlocker to sew it up and the whole shirt took me around an hour to make. I will make the arms slightly longer and wider next time, but that’s just personal preference. Still fits fine.

    Beautiful patterns

    The Skullduggery pattern is one of many that I've purchased from Sewing Revival. I'm a huge fan of the brand, I find the patterns come together well and are drafted well with minimal tweaking required to get the perfect fit for my shape. The instructions are clear and I love the photos, so much easier to follow than traditional diagrams.
