I am so excited to launch my third sewing pattern The Leona Dress which is available to buy on my Etsy shop! It has been so much fun creating this sewing pattern and I am so happy with the end result! I hope you all love it as much as I do.
The Leona Dress has a figure-hugging silhouette that compliments your curves and creates a flattering and effortlessly stylish vibe. The slip-on style dress has no tricky fastenings so is perfect for beginners! The bodice has a fitted shape with a deep v neckline, low back and thin straps. The semi-lined dress also has two versions with a midi-length skirt and side slits, or a shorter length skirt.
The Leona Dress pattern runs from UK Sizes 6 – 24. This dress can be sewn with any 4-way stretch fabric such as jersey, crepe jersey, stretch velvet, scuba, or any fabric with at least an 8% elastane/spandex content and that isn’t too lightweight. A medium weight fabric will have more structure and will feel less flimsy. You will need between 2 – 2.5m of fabric to make this dress.
I’ve really been getting into sewing more modern dresses, and I knew I wanted to create a slinkier/sexier piece that hugs your body yet feels easy-wearing. I had always envisioned this dress to be perfect for Christmas / New Years Eve gatherings and sewn in a deep velvet really brings the dress to life! I’ve also managed to create this pattern without the need for any fastenings and working with my experienced pattern grader, she allowed me to release this pattern in UK Sizes 6 – 24.
