Mock two-piece dress sewing pattern.
This amazingly retro sewing pattern looks like a two-piece but is actually a dress. The bodice in our version is made from thin lamb nappa leather and the skirt from Natté fabric. These materials can naturally be substituted for any dress fabric with some body.
This pattern is from the Retro Chic collection
Dress fabrics with some body, combined with soft leather or imitation leather.
Fabric for the skirt, width: 140 cm (55 ins) length: 1.45 m (1 3/4 yds) for all sizes.
Lining, width: 140 cm (55 ins) length: 0.50 m (5/8 yd).
Bias Tape/stay tape.
Invisible zippers, one 22 cm (9 ins) long and one 40 cm (16 ins) long, and a special presser foot.
Textile adhesive (e.g. Rudolfix, Gutermann Klebenaht HT 2).
This pattern doesn't include seam allowance
