Skill Level & Tips

Level: Intermediate/Advanced:
The Saira Dress sewing pattern is perfect for advanced sewers who want to showcase their skills by constructing the dress with French seams and chiffon. However, the pattern can be tailored to suit intermediate or moderate sewing skills by using more stable materials like cotton poplin or organza. Using an overlocker machine for seaming can simplify the construction and provide a polished finish.


Fabric Suggestions:
The Saira Dress can be constructed using a variety of fabrics. Our sample features a raw silk body and organza upper yoke for a vintage aesthetic. Stable fabrics like cotton poplin or organza make the construction easier, but more ambitious sewers can experiment with chiffon for the upper yoke and satin for the body.
