Sew Over It
Sew Over It Ultimate shift dress
The Ultimate Shift Dress would make an ideal first project!
The pattern is designed with beginners in mind, and will guide you through the basics of dressmaking. Learn how to create bust darts and attach all-in-one facings like a pro. With no tricky zips or buttonholes to master, simply pop the dress on over your head and fasten with a hook and eye.
But don’t forget, with loads of options for customisation, including adding sleeves, sleeve frills and turning the dress into a top, there is plenty of scope for a more advanced dressmaker to play around and have fun!
The Dress works best in a light to medium weight fabric with lots of drape. Think rayon, viscose, crepe.
The Shift Dress is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements.
Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
