Jessica Dress Sewing Pattern Digital PDF Sizes 6-24
The Jessica Dress is a classic slip dress that features a delicate cowl neckline and thin straps. The slip-on style design has no tricky fastenings and finishes with a mini length skirt. The dress also has tie-straps at the back to cinch in the waist to create a timeless silhouette.
This dress is a dream to sew with any lightweight fabrics with good drape such as: Satin, Rayon/Viscose, Crepe, Chiffon. The more fluid your fabric feels, the nicer it will hang over your chest to create the cowl effect.
For sizes 6-16 I recommend 2 metres / 2.2 yards of fabric. For sizes 18-24 I recommend 2.1 metres / 2.3 yards of fabric. I advise using a fabric that has a minimum width of 55 inches / 140cm to be able to cut on the bias.
This sewing pattern is designed for a looser fit at the waist and hips, so when choosing sizes go by your bust and waist measurement.
