The Angelina Shift Dress, what a dress! and you lucky people get it for free! This is only my second PDF pattern so you could call it vintage…! The fit on this dress is fantastic and really versatile – you don’t need darts or a zip so it can sewn up in an hour (how many are you going to take on holiday with you?!).
Using a complete facing to finish of necklines is probably the quickest way to get instant results. The pattern comes in the four sizes as e-book (PDF) as an immediate download, so you just have to get yourself some great fabric, use the link to the online lesson below and you are ready to go. I show you exactly how you can achieve this professional look.
The PDF is true to size, just cut the pattern out, attach the shift dress sewing pattern pieces together, and you are good to go! Enjoy making a quick dress which can be endlessly adapted to make different styles and don’t forget to leave your comments, we want to see how it looks!
