Get your Vintage on with the Saira Dress:

The body-con dress has quickly become a wardrobe must-have for women everywhere, so we created the Saira as a standout piece in our collection. Balancing vintage charm with contemporary styling, this dress pattern features a transparent upper piece, complete with a heart-shaped bust and cap sleeves, to create a truly timeless look. We constructed our sample using cotton linen, with a transparent chiffon yoke.

 

FEATURES:

  • A French seamed yoke
  • A crew neck collar complete with plunging heart shaped neckline
  • Raglan style cap sleeves, tipped with bias binding
  • Invisible centre back zip
  • Full length body-con seams - no need for darts
  • A turn-up hem
  • No lining

 

MATERIALS/ SUPPLIES:

(Based on largest size)

  • Fabric A: 100cm/ 40”
  • Fabric B: 64cm/ 25”
  • Fusible Interfacing: 25cm/ 10”
  • Pocket Lining: 75cm/ 30”
  • Invisible zip - 64cm+ in length

 

CONSTRUCTION TIPS:

The perfect dress pattern for an advanced sewer when used to its full French-seamed-chiffon capacity, the Saira is a versatile piece that can be constructed differently to suit those with intermediate, or even moderate, sewing skills. When the upper section is constructed using more stable materials, such as cotton poplin or organza, it becomes much easier to create. Using an overlocker machine to seam these kinds of materials will negate the need for French seams, and will help with that all important, overall garment finish.
