Dolman sleeve flared dress


Let's see the steps to draft the pattern for this dress.

It features a deep square neckline on back, dolman sleeves and front and back slit.

Shirt fabric is perfect, but also viscose or cotton/poly blends will work.

Start from a basic block with darts - minimum wearing ease 10cm at bust. You also need a matching sleeve.

Step 1

On basic block, draw the square neckline first. Open it by 6cm on shoulder lines from high point shoulder.

Shape center back slightly.

Lastly, draw front and back slits and flare at the hem.

Step 2

Cut on all the new lines and discard the unnecessary parts.

Step 3

Get the sleeve and flare it from the sides. Shape bottom slightly rounded.

Cut sleeve in the center to divide it in front and back parts.
