Adult Bodycon Dress | Adult Size S0c-L1c | Beginner Level Sewing Pattern

$8.95 $9.95


About:

The Bodycon dress is a tight fitting dress you make with knit fabric and a sewing machine capable of a stretch stitch. You can also sew most of the seams with a serger (overlock machine) but the binding will need to be sewn on with either a sewing machine or a coverstitch machine.

Because this dress is meant to fit tight the minimum stretch of the fabric required for this dress has been factored in when you select your size. This technology is the Stretch Layer. With this layer you can see whether you DO need to blend sizes or is you can get away without blending or you can get away with not blending so many sizes.

The Stretch Layer technology was created to streamline selecting a size; making a size choice with confidence faster. 

While this sewing pattern doesn't have a lot of options (only sleeveless) it includes priceless adjustment tutorials including: Swayback Adjustment, Lengthen/Shorten Adjustment, Full Bust Adjustment and Blending Sizes Adjustment. 

This bodycon dress pattern makes a great base to layer hoodies, cardigans and my favorite from the Seattle 90s scene, the flannel button up. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a digital product, not a finished garment, and cannot be returned/refunded. This is a beginner level PDF sewing pattern for knit fabrics.
