THE SHEATH DRESS • Pattern
By The Avid Seamstress, The Sheath Dress is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: The Sheath Dress is a gorgeously draped garment with a flattering round neckline, elasticated waist, and invisible zip at the back. Your options are endless; make this dress with short or mid-length sleeves, with inner pockets or without.
Depending on your fabric choice you could omit the zip at the back or put a simple button tie.
New to sewing? No worries! With minimal pieces to cut out and the option to create a looser fit without the elastic waist, this is a dress you’ll love to wear year-round.
Please note that the skirt is slim/fitted on this dress so please check your measurements and easily grade to the next size at the skirt if you would like it looser.
Sizing: This is a multi-size pattern, including sizes UK 8-18. Sizing, finished garment measurements and fabric requirements can be found here.
Fabric Suggestions: Lightweight to medium-weight fabrics is perfect for this pretty dress. Not suitable for stripes, diagonals, or plaids. Always allow extra fabric to match one-way designs.
Trims required: Matching thread, 40cm/16" invisible zip, 1 metre elastic (max 25mm wide).
Skill Level: Intermediate skill level.
