Pattern Puzzle - Curved Seam Dress

Once again our weekly #PatternPuzzle is focused on doing wicked things with darts!  The design is a classic in many ways and uses a very flattering diagonal seam.   The drape is sent in opposite directions to encourage the eye to take in the whole garment. 

All the pattern instructions have been moved to our new blog, on the website.  See you there!  :)





Let me know if you have any questions in the comments section on the website.  Very happy to help out if you decide to cut any of our #PatternPuzzles.  Enjoy :)

    1. Thank you for the compliments and dropping by the blog. It's wonderful to know you are an industry pattern maker. This social media thing makes it possible to speak to so many pattern makers in so many different countries. It is really interesting to understand the different methods, techniques and languages. :)

    1. Hey Valerie, I've seen your blog. You could easily wear this dress. For me the success mostly depends on a good dress block to start. :)

  3. This perfectly illustrates why, when starting with a complex pattern like this, any alterations are so complex. A beautiful dress.
