Raman Dress Sewing Pattern Digital PDF Sizes 6-24
The Raman Dress is a floaty summer dress that features long tie straps, a square neckline and a three-tiered skirt with a stylish exposed ruffle detail. The slip-on design has no tricky fastenings and is the perfect dress pattern for beginners! The bodice is semi-fitted and lined with the dress having a looser fit on the waist and hips.
This dress is a dream to sew with any light/medium weight woven non-stretch fabric such as: Cotton, Satin, Cotton Poplin, Rayon/Viscose, Crepe and Chiffon. The skirt of this dress is not lined, so you will need to make sure the fabric is not too see-through, alternatively you could line the skirt too.
For all sizes, I recommend purchasing between 3.5 - 4 metres or 3.8 - 4.4 yards of fabric. This will cover the main and the lining fabric. If using a 55-58" wide fabric 3.5 metres / 3.8 yards of fabric will be sufficient. If using a narrow fabric such as 52" I advise using 4 metres / 4.4 yards of fabric. The majority of pattern pieces is cut on the fold, so it is advised to use a fabric that has a width of 55" or more, if sewing sizes 16-24 I advise using a 58" wide fabric.
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.
