Libellule Dress, Shirt & Jacket Sewing Pattern, I AM Patterns



I am a dress or a shirt if sewn at your normal size and I can also be a long or short jacket if you sew me a size up. I have a flared shape, a straight collar closing with a large button. My concealed button placket is slightly offset for a dual effect: classic yet modern.

The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.

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.
