New Pattern Release - The Mayberry Dress

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

The Mayberry Dress is your classic comfortable shirt-waist dress with a playful twist, blending its cool casual silhouette with clever construction techniques.

The Details

Mayberry's gently curved neckline leads to its distinctive off-centre button placket. Darts shape the bust while the in-built drawstring casing means you can make the dress as shapely or as comfortable as you like.

With inset sleeves in three different lengths, Mayberry is the ideal layering dress come rain, hail or shine. Choose sweet turn & hem short sleeves, or add a little drama with the 3/4 & long sleeves that gather gently at the narrow cuff.

With A, B, C & D cups as well as clever inset pockets, Mayberry is a perfect project for confident beginner seamstresses.

Mayberry comes with your choice of inset short, 3/4 or long sleeves, making it the perfect seasonal dress.

Multiple Bust Cup Sizes

With the addition of multiple cup sizes running from an A to a D cup, Mayberry ensures you'll have the best fit across the bust without needing to do any extra bust adjustments.

This results in not only a well fitting bodice, but one that us comfortable for everyday wear with no extra fuss.

Included in the instructions are a full set of Finished Garment Measurements as well as detailed instructions on choosing the right size for your unique shape.

Skill Level

If you are a confident beginner seamstress, Mayberry has a few techniques that will push your sewing skills up a step including set-in sleeves and buttonholes.

For the advanced seamstress, Mayberry will prove a fun make with the addition of the clever in-built drawstring casing and beautiful set-in pockets.

Fabric Options

Mayberry works well made up in a number of woven fabrics with some drape.

Linen, cotton lawn, voile and poplin will provide lovely yet light-weight structure to your Mayberry Dress. Perfect for a casual weekend of gardening and coffee dates.

Slinky rayons, silks and sheer fabrics will step your Mayberry Dress up a notch resulting in a dress with much more fluidity and drape, perfect for late summer evenings and impromptu get togethers.

Use contrast facing fabric for a sweet little collar detail if you choose not to do the neckline up all the way.
