Sewing Bee Shift Dress – Free sewing patterns


Every woman looks good in a classic shift dress, but it only works if the fit is perfect. A dress that skims the contours will always be more flattering than one that is skin tight, and the way to achieve that is by using a design with several points of adjustment. This design by Tess Evelegh has princess seams, darts and a waistline seam, all of which can be adjusted on the pattern before you cut it out, then fitted as you sew. Make in casual linen or printed silk for the festive season.
