Sewing

I posted this dress on one my eco printing group, and fellow members have asked me to share the pattern.  And I’d promised them that I would…so here it is.

I bought a similar looking dress in Korea while I was there on vacation 3 years ago. It has 2 pockets in the front, and the sides are cut at a deeper angle giving the front a more rounded edge.  I traced the outline of the dress and modified the design. This pattern is based upon my measurements, and you can add/subtract to your appropriate size.

Materials: 2 yards of a 45” wide raw silk, folded in half (selvage on the both sides), and then half again. Follow the chart below for a rough idea. The cutouts on the sides can be used as pockets; you can also make some pleats on the pocket. Simply sew the shoulders, sides, and hem the neckline–voila a 3-hole dress in a jiffy! Let me know if you still have questions and I love to see your version of this dress.
