Sew Over It has made the thrills of a new handmade dress more desirable with the Isla dress sewing pattern
This dress is the perfect day dress as it’s floaty, feminine and really flattering on a wide range of figures. With optional shoulder and yoke frills it can be dressed up for a party, but leave these off and you’ve got a gorgeous dress for a weekend break, lunch with friends or a stylish look for the office. Isla features a gently fitting button-up bodice with bust and waist darts.
The yoke offers the chance to insert a front frill, with frills also optional on the shoulders for a very on-trend look. Set-in sleeves can be cut short, or kept full-length with a gathered, closed cuff, and the panelled skirt gives a fluted, feminine feel, which is perfect for swishing!
This pattern is great for intermediate stitchers, and t designed to be sewn in lightweight woven fabrics with lots of drape such as rayon and viscose, crepe and georgette. The pattern comes in sizes sizes 8-20 (UK).
