PATTERN DETAILS

Party season is coming! It's time to think about what you'll wear for the holiday season this year. Want to wow them at the office party? Then you'll need something 'on-trend' and with lace, one-shoulder and asymmetrical dresses all being in fashion, I've combined to create a free little black dress pattern that I think is a winner. This dress would also look amazing in a light color fabric with a lace overlay - great for a summer dress or wedding. Features: * Lace, net, mesh or chiffon overlay * Lined bodice, lined skirt optional * Darted bodice, and straight skirt with small pleats or darts * Invisible side zipper * Overlay can hang lower than the inner skirt if you like * Range of sizes * Super flattering - sexy but not revealing Skill level: Intermediate. The instructions for this dress assume that you already have experience in sewing with non-stretch fabrics and making basic fitting adjustments necessary in any pattern to achieve a good personal fit. You should know how to sew an invisible zipper. Experience in lining a dress is also useful but not essential. The instructions provided for this project assume a certain level of knowledge and experience and don't go into details on how to finish your seams, insert a zipper etc. Links to separate tutorials are included if you need them. Full step by step photo tutorial is included as well as instructions and larger photos in the blog post at So Sew Easy. at http://so-sew-easy.com [Updated Sept 2014 - uploaded as a PDF file, instead of a ZIP file, all in one document.] BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Insert an invisible zipper Use a sewing machine Make basic personal fitting adjustments SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Extra small to medium
