This is a one shoulder dress that hits at the knee that I made with a lovely purple super soft organic jersey. Inside the bodice is elastic at the top to keep everything in place. The skirt is lightly gathered and because the front and the back are identical it can be worn on either shoulder. I love working with knits because you don’t need darts or zippers and the dress is so comfy.
The pattern is for knit fabrics (it won’t work the same with woven fabrics) and the sizes listed are finished garment sizes. Since knit fabrics can stretch to fit your body you don’t need nearly as much ease when sewing with them so choose the size that is closest to your measurements or slightly larger.
NOTE: I’m still just learning to make multi sized patterns and I’d love any feedback on the pattern, instructions, anything. If you find a mistake or need something clarified please let me know! I appreciate all your notes and comments. It is a learning process.
Also, the instructions are included in the pattern PDF. I find that most people like it that way and don’t want to go searching other places for the instructions.
However, I have included lots of pictures and notes on my blog if you need extra help.
