I am a Finnish indie author and designer, self-taught seamstress with a degree and a passion to create. I run a small business in fashion, offering both unique, one-of-a-kind pret a porter garments and sewing, knitting and crocheting patterns. As the Gothic style is close to my heart, most of my designs feature elements of dark fashion.
As the environment is very dear to me, I try to include tips on how to take full advantage of recycled and upcycled materials in my patterns.

I needed a comfortable, long dress for everyday wear. I wanted it with a fitted empire-line and a wrap-cut. A bit of lace made the dress extra-special, adding a pinch of fairy-dust to workdays.
This tutorial will help You draft a wrap-cut dress with a fitted empire waist with the help of an ordinary top pattern. It also offers a fully illustrated sewing tutorial. With its help, You'll be able to transform a basic top pattern into a lovely dress suitable for both office and free time. And if You don't feel like drafting, use the pattern sheet now included.
The dress has an empire waist at the front, and a wrap-cut on the bodice. The back of the dress is straight, and the hem fully closed.
The tutorial is written in Finnish and English. Please note, that this tutorial includes both a drafting tutorial, and a pdf-pattern in sizes 32-38.
