Customer Questions and Answers
Can I use bias tape for neck and arm holes? If so, what adjustment to the pattern would be needed?
Yes, you can use bias tape to make a bias tape facing. Just remove any excess seam allowance from these areas.
Greetings! I'm assembling my pattern. I would love to blend a 4/6 top to fit my chest and shoulders with an 8/10 skirt to fit my hips. But it looks like there are no gathers on the skirt when it attaches to the bodice (they're matching). Should I gradually widen the bodice from the armpit down until it meets the 8/10 line at the bottom where it meets the skirt? Is there a better way? I have never tried to mix sizes before and I usually get a passable garment that is just a little too big on top. Thanks for your help.
Hello! Yes, when blending sizes it should be gradual and so that any matching pattern pieces are going to be the same size when seamed. So you will need to widen your pattern at the point where the bodice matches the skirt to ensure they fit together.
When i cut the paper pattern, i have to leave some centimeters more ?
I'm not sure what you are referring to? If you are thinking seam allowance, then the seam allowances are all included in the pattern so you can cut the pattern along your desired size line.
Cute! What weight of linen was used in the featured photos of the dress?
This is a now sold-out medium weight yarn dye linen. Unfortunately we don't have plans to restock this fabric, but our IL019 medium weight fabric is the weight match and comes in a very wide variety of colors.
is there a wide format version for professional printing?
In order to offer so many patterns for free we can only make them available in the A4/letter format. Thanks for your interest in the larger format.
I started making this dress, but underestimated the amount of fabric needed if using a patterned fabric. That being said, I ended up making a top from the top to dress. I added a band (the belt) to the bottom to finish it. It is so cute and comfortable. I will post a picture of the top. I love the free patterns here and have purchased the Riva Pattern, but haven't used it yet. I will update my review when I finish the dress.
I made this dress from some nice linen and it's a lovely easy to wear summer dress. Generally the pattern went together very nicely. But I would recommend cutting the front bodice pieces so the front wrap edge is on the straight of grain (which is actually how the sample in the picture is cut), rather than on the bias. Cutting it as directed in the pattern ends up with the front edge on the bias and it stretches out significantly over time. If i made it again, I would also make it with in-seam pockets instead of patch pockets as they aren't that attractive if you have a plain fabric.
