Dolman shirt dress with pleats


To draft this pattern, start from a basic block with dolman sleeve and without darts.

The dress is realized in shirting cotton - plain color or stripes.

Viscose, cotton blends and silk would also give amazing results - but of course with different effects both at pleats and hem.

Step 1

From center front, draw the button stand outward by 1,5cm.

On both back and front, measure on shoulder line 5cm from high shoulder point and square down to the hem.

Straighten at the hip line.

Step 2

Get back and cut through slash line.

Pivoting at the shoulder, spread 16-18cm at waistline.

Fill the gap at hem drawing it round, then redraw the shoulder line straight.
