Well, I found out that the posts that have been viewed the most times on my blog are those sharing simple patterns. I guess many of my readers are newbies, or just too busy to have time to invest in a sophisticated projects. Even I sometimes feel too lazy to cut and sew too many details – so I often opt for simple pieces of garment, which do not take more than 2 hours to finish.
So today it is going to be a simple dress: a drop shoulder loose fitting midi dress, which is great for a lazy day. See how it looks in 3D simulation? Do you think it will be nice for a picnic in the park? Or even for a fall wedding (if made with luxurious fabric)?
I even made a simulation for orange color:The pattern is made using layered PDF, please check for your size before printing so you won’t waste your paper. If you still do not know how to print a layered PDF, please check for the instruction here.
You can print this using your home printer and A4/Letter paper. I calculated the printing area so that you will be able to use either type of paper to print the pattern out perfectly. Always print the first page first and check with the test square if you are printing at the right scale before you print out the whole pattern.
Do you want to add side seam pockets to the pattern for additional convenience? Just go ahead because it is too easy, just follow the quick instruction here.
After taping down all the pages following the instruction, the overall layout of the pattern pieces is like this:
The cutting instruction is for the garment with facings. If you choose to sew it with bias binding, skip the front facing and back facing pieces. If you choose to sew with bodice lining, skip the facing pieces and cut a set of front and back pieces in lining fabric.
A. Front – 1pcs
B. Back – 2pcs
C. Sleeve – 2pcs
D. Front Facing – 1pcs + Fusible Interfacing – 1pcs
E. Back Facing – 1pcs + Fusible Interfacing – 1pcs
