Mermaid stretch dress

4.5/5

Let's draft together the pattern of this sexy evening dress.

Get a stretch fabric and the pattern of a basic dress with bust dart.

Step 1

Manipulate the bust dart to into a french dart.

Draw the front and back neckline and change the skirt into a mermaid style (reduce at the knee, flare at the hem).

Reduce 1-2cm at the back waist to have a more fitted skirt.

Step 2

Trace the separate pieces and draw a strip for shoulder straps and back fastening.
