Description

This is my second try on AMC dress. This time, I altered the pattern and made the neckline smaller (if that’s a proper description). Anyway, this dress is more comfortable than the previous one, since I don’t have to worry about the way I sit and so on. This pattern version I attend to upload but I’m having difficulties with making printable version of the pattern. I’ll do my best and try to post it soon!


Since I posted a pattern I thought it wold be useful to show you which alterations I did on the original pattern. The top part of the dress was too wide on the back, while on the waist it was fitting well. That made the zipper stand not so close to the body. So, I made darts on the back top piece of the dress, to narrow it. See red line on the fourth image (green line marks the stich originally designed by the pattern).

    Very nice dress. Great pattern detail and I love the black & white. Pity you don’t have instructions included on how to assemble it. I’m a beginner and would love to have a go. I’ve just joined this site a few minutes ago. Looking forward to seeing more. Keep up the good work.

    I love this dess! The print is so beautiful. And I also really like the shape. Maybe I´ll try such a dress with your pattern once…

    I love it! Did you line it? Or did you just hem the bottom band?

    Thank you all for your nice comments! I am so glad thay you like the dress, and I hope you’ll make one yourself. _@camaro1952: yes, the dress can be easily transformed. while sewing it, I was wondering whether to add sleeves, since it looked good without them, too. also, it could have more rustic-look, or very glamurous-look (like you said – with satin trim) if the right fabrics are used.

      Hi Ana Jan,

      Is there supposed to have gathers in the sleeves? I can’t fit them in without gathers… but gathers don’t look good on me at all…..

    This dress has wonderful possibilities! I can see it sleeveless, done in black with balck satin trim—- what a great “little black dress”!
