Minimalistic Moda Dress

The minimalistic Moda dress will add a subtly demure element to absolutely any occasion with clean, sharp lines and curved cap sleeves.  Featuring a plunging square neckline and delicate piping that contours the body, the wearer can make full use of the nipped in waist for a more modern, feminine look. Experiment with colour-blocking dress panels and contrasting piping to create a more statement piece, and to enhance that all important body-shaping aesthetic.

CREATIVE TIPS

The ideal pattern for beginner sewers who are looking to improve their skills in dress making, the Moda features a number of carefully created, simple construction techniques to really streamline the entire sewing process. With dynamic panelling to negate bust and waist shaping darts, a concealed zip at the side seam, and neck, sleeve and hem facings that take away the need for lining, constructing the Moda dress really couldn't be easier. Piping can be bought by the meter (or even custom made), but absolute beginners can benefit from yet an easier project still, by removing the piping detail altogether.
