Betty Dress - Sew Over It

Regular price £14.50 Sale

Make yourself a beautiful 1950’s inspired dress based on the style of Betty Draper!

With a fitted bodice and full circle skirt, Betty is super flattering for all figures, nipping you in at the waist and flaring out to create a beautiful silhouette. The dress fastens with an invisible zip down the centre back, has facings around the neckline and armholes and a machine finished hem.

The pattern contains full instructions with beautifully illustrated diagrams.

Sewing Level
The Betty Dress is an advanced beginner pattern. We recommend you’ve made a couple of garments before and had a go at inserting an invisible zip.

Fabric Suggestions
The Betty Dress works beautifully in a variety of different fabrics, including light to medium weight cotton and cotton lawn, rayon, crepe and even lightweight wools. Because of the nature of the circle skirt, we recommend avoiding any strong one-way directional prints.

Fabric Requirements
The Betty Dress is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements. 

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

Why not make up this stunning dress in a bright bold print, like our Pink Floral Cotton?
