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 Natt fabric. These materials can naturally be substituted for any dress fabric with some body.
Lamb nappa leather for bodice. To make this style in size 18, you will need 5 leather skins with a total of approx. 23 sq. ft. altogether (1 sq. ft. = 30 × 30 cm). Ask your leather dealer about the requirements for larger sizes since leather skins can vary greatly. We recommend you take the paper pattern with you when buying the 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).
