Paneled dress with bow collar

4.5/5

Let’s draft together the pattern of this dress.

Start from a basic block with darts.

Step 1

On both front and back draw the halter neckline and the panels.

Divide each dart in two and discard the volume into the panel cut. flare at the hem 8-12cm on both sides of each panel.

Onto the front, draw two slash lines from the bust height to the neckline.

Cut through those and through the bust line.

Step 2

Close the shoulder darts opening its volume in the lines you just cut.

Then trace the panels I, II, III separately.

Trace the back panels separately the same way.

Step 3

Draw the collar as a rectangular piece (twice your neck circumference + the amount you want for the bow) and your pattern is ready!
