Spring is here and it’s the perfect time to show our handmade creations. For this new season I present you a new sewing pattern: feminine dress with a romantic flair,  Dalila.

Version A has a figure-hugging silhouette and pleated bodice and skirt, with a cinched waist and button down front with a hidden placket that gives a touch of elegance to the dress.

 

Version A is made in a light polyester fabric from Supercut.

 

 

Yoke and waistband are lined with fusible interfacing, to provide some structure. Although a model that emphasises the waist, at the same time it’s really comfortable too – as the waistband has a 5 cm of ease for each size.

 

The pleats, only partially secured around the bust, don’t limit the movement and create a lovely flow at the bodice, while having a structured look at the same time.

The more casual version B has a relaxed flared silhouette, with pleats down the front and an invisible zipper at the back.

 

Also for this version I used a polyester fabric from Supercut.

 

The lightness of the fabric combined with the pleats gives an elegant movement to the dress.

 

The pleats are secured in place with decorative hand stitches, just above and under the bust, to provide some gentle shaping.

There’s also two sleeve options: 3/4 sleeves or short sleeves with a cuff and vent.

 

Both versions feature a yoke (front and back) with a curved seamline that continue to the sides of the sleeve to create a beautifully balanced look of the bodice.

 

In both versions pleats are secured in place with decorative hand stitches, just above and under the bust, to provide some gentle shaping.
