Women's pattern, wrap over dress
I was looking for a practical design that is really easy to make.
So here is a summer sleeveless dress, with only a few pattern pieces for simple sewing.
Lumineuse wraps over at the front.
A casing holds it together.
Elastic threaded through the casing gathers the dress at the hips and makes it very comfortable.
At the back a yoke with a teardrop shaped cut out adds a touch of detail.
The back yoke is edged with piping.
The upper back is lined for a perfect finish.
Lumineuse looks prettiest when made in floaty and lightweight fabrics.
I strongly advise viscose.
This Lumineuse is made in:
Fabrics (width 140cm)
Viscose, silk, floaty cotton: 190cm
Bias binding (edging): 380cm
Bias binding (hems): 200cm
Soft elastic: 120cm
