I am Octarine, a stylish wrap dress. My fluid fabric adds grace to my silhouette. I have a V-neckline and am knee-length. I have elbow-length butterfly sleeves, a button closure at the waist and can be tightened by a removable belt and pleats.
I AM Patterns are designed to be traced off. The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. This means that you will be able to make multiple sizes of the garment and adjust the pattern as you trace it if necessary. For this you could use tracing paper, baking parchment, thin wrapping paper; or we can supply you with some spot and cross pattern paper.
The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.
Flowy woven fabrics with a nice drape: viscose, crêpe, silk. You can also use crushed velvet or velvet panne. However, follow the cutting instructions in section 1 as this fabric stretches.Fabric Requirements:
