Everything you need to make a gorgeous denim dress with collar, pleats and pockets is in the Fulwood kit. No need to worry about choosing the right fabric, you don't even have to worry about the thread, just get your kit and start sewing!
You're going to love this dress; it's so versatile and can be made in lots of different versions and fabrics. It is basically a loose fitting pull-on shift dress with no fastenings making it a brilliant first dressmaking project. There are 2 different finishes for the neck - a roll-over collar or simple bound boat neck, optional side seam pockets and optional tie belt. You can customise it further by making it with the optional pleats or just using the bodice to make a simple boxy top. It's cool worn on its own for summer and makes a great layering piece worn with long sleeved t-shirts and leggings for winter. See more versions on this Pinterest board.
The dress is a fairly loose fitting generously sized garment so 3 sizes are included in the pattern ranging from bust size 80cm to 101cm (31.5" to 40") and hip size 88cm to 109cm (34.5" to 43"). This pattern is sized based on body measurements not dress sizes and includes full details of finished garment measurements for each size to make sure you get the right size first time.
This design is easy and will suit beginners that have just started to sew!
I have carefully selected some of the most beautiful quality dressmaking fabrics that are perfect for making MIY Collection sewing patterns. Kits are ideal for absolute beginners and the Fulwood is an easy, quick sew.
What's in the Kit?
- a copy of the printed paper version of the Fulwood Dress pattern (which can be re-used to make more dresses!)
- over 2.5m of a beautiful quality medium weight cotton denim fabric in a choice of 2 shades to make one dress
- a reel of matching colour Gutermann polyester sewing thread.
All fabrics included in kits should be pre-washed before use, the amount of fabric included in the kit is enough to make one Fulwood dress with collar, pleats and pockets and allows for shrinkage that will occur when the fabric is pre-washed. Washing instructions are included.
There is a choice of 2 shades of blue denim for your kit: a pale light blue wash and a dark indigo wash.
