Made To Order Summer Dresses

One Pattern Many Styles.

This is the first pattern that I have made from scratch using a 2D pattern cutting method. I used Winifred Aldrich’s book which was pretty easy to use.

Up until now I was either pinning the fabric on a dummy or copying the shape of  an existing garment to make a new piece.

After a few toiles, trials and mistakes I got there in the end. I wanted to create a pattern that I could adapt to various styles, ie long/short sleeve, a-line/full skirt and one that would work with different types of fabrics too. Here are four varieties all made from the same basic pattern. I’m pretty pleased.

If you would like one made to your very own measurements, get in touch!
