Pattern Puzzle - Triple Twist Jersey Dress

Really enjoying our regular Saturday morning Pattern Puzzles on our facebook page.  Here is the sketch, pattern plan and pattern pieces for the front of the dress.  Please note this style only works with a jersey block and two-way stretch jersey fabric.

The green areas (in the diagram below) are where the pattern has been slashed and opened up to include extra fabric for the twist and drape.  

If you'd like to learn my method for creating Twist Drape Patterns I have a detailed worksheet for making Jersey Twist Patterns. For just a few dollars you'll get the same training you'd get if you came to the workshop in my studio.

The beauty of this style is that you get to work with single and double twists all in the one pattern.  However this pattern does come with a warning - it is not for the faint hearted as there is a lot of exposed skin!

If you are curious about the draped styles featured in the Pattern Puzzles join us at Studio Faro for the Draped Dresses workshop on Friday 24th May.  There is also an album of previous puzzles in the facebook photos page.
