This is a downloadable sewing pattern PDF for a vintage inspired, fit and flare sleeveless boatneck dress.
The Wicked Witch is a sewing pattern for a vintage inspired fit and flare dress. It features a lined bodice, bateau neckline with a v-back, centre back zipper closure, half sleeves, and an A-line skirt with in-seam pockets. The pattern is available in sizes XS-XL (bust sizes 33-44”).
Sewing instructions are included in download, and feature both photos and computer drafted images for optimum assembly guidance.
Fair warning: this is not a pattern for beginners!
I’m not offering any tutorials or sewing lessons with this project, and as a result, the instructions are a little sparse in places. I assume that you already know how to install a zipper, finish a hem, under stitch, etc; this is merely a run-through on the order of steps I take to make this dress. And of course, there are multiple methods that can be used in constructing a garment, so feel free to use whichever method you like best.
Seam allowance is included in pattern but not marked. Unless specified, the seam allowance is ½”.
*2-2 1/2yds fabric, depending on your size and the width of the fabric you’re using (I provide layout suggestions for 45” and 60” fabric widths)
*1/2yd lining fabric
*Sewing Machine and Serger (you can get away with using just a sewing machine with a zig zag stitch on the raw edges, but a serger will do such a nice job of finishing those seams!)
