I am launching a new line of sewing patterns, called Stepalica Patterns
Bellow is a pattern / dress description. For more details about the pattern and purchase options, please visit my blog Stepalica.
The main ornament of the dress – the central diamond with spiral gathers – is emphasized by using two contrasting fabrics. The skirt slightly flares down, and it’s made of two layers of fabric, thus making this flowy dress more interesting. The waist yoke is asymmetrical, giving the dress another interesting detail. The back has simple pattern, with vertical darts and center back seam, making the dress fit your upper body nicely.
I used a synthetic chiffon, which is ideal for making gathers on the central diamond (I wanted to make the dress practical and easy for maintaining – the chiffon doesn’t wrinkle at all, it drapes beautifully, and has soft flow, so the dress can be washed in a washing machine, and the gathered diamond won’t give you headaches while pressing).
The dress is completely lined with beige-gray viscose.
With a blazer or cardigan, Nougat dress would make a perfect office appropriate garment.
For more details and new announcements related to the pattern follow my blog Stepalica.
As an early special Black Friday promotion you can now enroll in the course ($80 value) for $49.99!
