100 Acts of Sewing Patterns - Dress No. 2
Beyond Measure is delighted to be the exclusive UK retailer of the 100 Acts of Sewing patterns from US maker Sonya Philip.
Sonya developed the series as part of her slow sewing project 100 Acts of Sewing and has created a cult following for these simple but beautiful patterns. Used as they are, they create easy fitting, comfortable garments, ideal to show off your special fabrics. As your confidence grows, you will be customising and personalising the clothes to create an exciting and unique wardrobe! You can find lots of ideas and tutorials on Sonya’s blog.
Dress No. 2 is a long sleeved dress with a slight A-line silhouette (a bit less flared than Dress No.1) With many ways to make this dress your own, it’s sure to become a wardrobe staple. It can also be shortened and worn as a stylish tunic – perfect for interesting textures and prints. The neck is finished with bias tape facing and optional patch pockets.
The pattern calls for 3 yards (2.75 meters) of woven fabric (no jersey or knits). Cotton, wool, viscose, double gauze would be ideal.
An instruction booklet walks you through the steps, from tracing and cutting the pattern pieces, attaching the sleeves, to making and sewing bias tape. The pattern is printed on thick white paper.
