Drape Drape 3 No 12 and a Pattern Sharing Post

  4 comments    

I am sharing this pattern to on line sewing enthusiasts.





(Inner panel suppose to be one piece, due to fabric limitation, it was sewn together using 3 pieces of fabrics)



Original design has a split and open side view which is too revealing for normal daily wear. Pattern modified to close the opening and to create a tulip shaped hem.










Drape Drape Book 3



Reasons for sewing knits:1.       Comfortable
2.       Easy fitting3.       Finished garments are foldable, washable, squeezable4.       Flowy and elegant. 

Reasons I like this and all other drape drape designs

               1. Asymmetrical

                2. Emphasize waist shape

                3. Looks like a regular shaped dress


Suggested Fabric: stretch fabric, jersey, plain knit

Fabric I chose: Green Rayon Knit


Pattern I use:
1. Based on the original design, Modified.

2. AI drafted

3. Size S,M (Burda sizing 36-40) (US sizing 0-6) (Big four pattern sizing: 8-12)

4. Style Modifications, sleeveless, twisted shoulder seam, added inside skirt panel piece. Tulip hemline front and back.


Difficulty: Intermediate.


Suggested machines: Serger and Cover Stitch.


Some hand sewing involved .


Some sewing instructions included in the pattern. Drape Drape 3 Book is recommended.

 I am sharing some pictures I took while constructing this dress .




Pattern 
Comes with simple sewing instructions




Fabric is heavy. It drapes down and pull the dress longer.
If use fabric not very stretchy, this dress will end up too short.



 Gathering

Mark and Pin prepare to sew on the inner panel.



The dress is heavy and pull down the arm hold and made it too big. I threaded a thin cord to hold the arm hole stable. Using a hair pin.




Sew on the inner panel. 
The Instruction in the book calls for top stitch to secure the inner panel. I used serger.




Shoulder seams were sewn as above. Folded to make a twist.

Enjoy your sewing!

  2. The style of clothing changes from time to time. At time, jackets are wanted and at times pullovers. This all shows that people do not like to stick to one thing. Thankfully, there are mens designer brands where you can get what you want.

  3. Wonderful inspiration. Just what I need, since it seems that a lot of what's on trend is exactly this color combination. Great sewing patterns.
