Classic Dress Women’s Sewing Pattern
~ Use this dress pattern with a light to mid-weight cotton or cotton/polyester woven material; this will help your dress fall nicely!
If main fabric is different from facing and strap fabric (42″/106 cm width):
~ 2 2/3 yards (2.4 meters) for main fabric
~ 2/3 yard (0.6 meters) for facing and strap fabric
If the same fabric is used for dress, facings, and belt (42″/106 cm width):
~ 3 yards (2.8 meters)
You will also need an invisible zipper for the closure at center back.
~ This pattern includes women’s sizing 0-22; this accommodates a chest size range of 31″-46 1/2″.
~ A serger or overlock machine is always nice to have; however, it is not a requirement for this pattern.
~ Depending on the fabric you choose, this dress pattern can be for special occasions, or dressed down for more casual events!
~ This is a classic dress PDF sewing pattern that you print out to use. Once your payment is confirmed, you will then be able to download you pattern instantly as two files (one is the dress pattern, the other a “How to Insert an Invisible Zipper” tutorial)! After you download the pattern, you can then print the pattern on letter or A4 paper.
~ I try to make the instructions easy to follow along with simple wording, making sewing a fun project! The pattern pieces are all professionally drawn with CAD (computer-aided design) illustrations for professional quality. There are also clear, step-by-step photos for each step of the sewing process.
~ When you buy from Gina Renee Designs, you are supporting a women-operated small business! More importantly, you get a professional-quality product to make garments you’ll love!
