Notes

Simple sleeveless A-line shift dress with bust darts and a detailed scallop shaped circle collar.

Sizing: I made this pattern to fit my size (bust 83cm; waist 67cm; hips 90cm), which is usually a BurdaStyle size 36. The finished dress laid flat will be about: bust 86cm, waist 90cm, hips 100cm and length from shoulder 90cm.

About enlargement: I am by no means a profess-sional, but only self taught. Anyway, I think enlarging this shift dress should be quite simple by adding extra at the side seams.

Materials: middle weight fabrics, which are a little stiff (I used dupion silk for mine); depending on fabric width about 1.2m should be enough; some light-weight fabric for cutting 30 circles (collar); some fusible interfacing for the armhole facing and the scallop shaped circle collar

Printing: I used A4 sized paper for this pattern, but it should work with smaller ones, too. Set your printer on ‘no scaling’ or rather ‘100%’. I have also added a little test square, which should be 10 × 10 cm. Tape pattern and cut it.

Cutting: There is no seam allowance included. I would recommend adding 1.5cm seam allowance.
