I love dresses don't you? They're so easy to wear and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Nicola Dress and Harwood Dress are the latest patterns from Sewaholic
with pear-shaped figures in mind
Harwood is a stylish sleeveless dress for pear-shaped ladies. It has a gathered yoke, button front and flared skirt with elasticated waist. This sewing pattern can be made in three different lengths - knee, shorter and mid-knee length skirt. There's also options to add piping or trimming to the yoke seams to add a stylish finish. For curvy ladies, this sewing pattern can be adjusted to broaden the shoulders and bust. Available in a good range of sizes 0-20 and priced at $19.98 (US). Skill level is set at intermediate sewers but instructions are always very good.
Shirtdresses should be top of the make list and Nicola is a lovely example. It features a soft scooped V- neck with collar, button front, and is knee length. You can make with long sleeves or cap sleeves plus a comfy elasticated waist and tie belt.
Both the Nicola and Harwood sewing patterns are available in a good range of sizes 0-20, priced at $19.98 each and come in printed and PDF formats from the Sewaholic website.
