The Avid Seamstress - Sheath Dress Pattern (UK 6-22)

Price incl. VAT
(Low stock: 1)

Difficulty: Confident Beginner

Sizes: UK 6-22


The Sheath Dress is a stunningly draped garment featuring a flattering round neckline, an elasticated waist, and an invisible zip at the back. This pattern offers endless possibilities to tailor the dress to your preferences. Choose between short or mid-length sleeves, and decide whether to include inner pockets or go without. The fabric you select opens up even more options: you can omit the zip at the back and opt for a simple button tie, adding a touch of elegance to your creation.

New to sewing? Don't worry! The Sheath Dress is designed with minimal pieces to cut out, making it an ideal project for beginners. Moreover, you have the option to create a looser fit by omitting the elastic waist, resulting in a dress you'll love to wear throughout the year.

Please take note that the skirt of this dress is slim and fitted. To ensure the perfect fit, kindly check your measurements and easily grade to the next size at the skirt if you desire a looser silhouette.
