Pattern Details

Figure-hugging elastic velvet with subtle details is what makes this little black dress special. Show off Your curves in a sophisticated way. The dress is made with elastic velvet, and has a ruched neckline, over-hand cuffs, and a hi-lo hem gathered to shape with velvet strips and buttons. Measurements of the dress are taken from a finished, unstretched garment. Considering negative ease, Your measurements should be 2-3" bigger. The download (4.1Mt) includes a pdf-pattern for the bombshell-dress in sizes 32-28, and a fully illustrated sewing tutorial. The tutorial is written in Finnish and English.
