McQueen knit dress


Let's draft the pattern for this trendy dress.

Pick a thick knit and have fun joining the bands, or even better knit them yourself to have finished edges on all sides!

To draft the pattern, start from a contoured dress (basic dress with darts and zero wearing ease).

Step 1

First, trace front, back and sleeve.

Change front waist dart so that it is 3cm wide from underbust to waist, then on sleeve draw the armpit line and cut through it.

Step 2

Merge back, sleeve and front at armhole, matching notches, and draw the new neckline.

Cut through the line and eliminate the upper part.

Step 3

Draw a line parallel to the new neckline and 10 to 13cm below it, this is the first band.

Cut through neckline and this last line.
