Ultimate Shift Dress
Want to start dressmaking but don’t know where to begin? Then the Ultimate Shift Dress would make an ideal first project! The pattern is designed with beginners in mind, and will guide you through the basics of dressmaking. Learn how to create bust darts and attach neckline facings like a pro. With no tricky zips or buttonholes to master, simply pop the dress on over your head and fasten with a hook and eye.
But don’t forget, with loads of options for customisation, including adding sleeves, sleeve frills and a neck flounce, there is plenty of scope for a more advanced dressmaker to play around and have fun!
Materials required: any woven fabric (ideally lightweight cotton or wool crepe) but remember slippy fabrics are harder to sew!
