Pretty Basic Jersey Dress



Bodycon dresses have quickly become a staple of fashion. Ranging from super-revealing to office-appropriate, figure-hugging dresses are here to stay.

Our bodycon style is designed to fit like a glove. The Pretty Basic Jersey Dress is best made with thicker viscose or cotton jersey. It comes with two neckline options, and cuffed sleeves. The hem can be modified in length, and the dress, being fitted and simple, is easy to mix and match. It goes with all kinds of cardigans and vests, can be worn under another dress, or made super-short and paired with cute leggings.

The Pretty Basic Jersey Dress comes in five sizes, from petite 32 to 40. All sizes are included in the download (dl size 2,6Mt). The download includes a pdf-pattern sheet, and written instructions for cutting and sewing. Since this is a Pretty Basic style, the instructions do not include a photo tutorial.

You’ll need to have basic knowledge of garment construction and of working with pdf-pattern to easily create this style. Techniques used are beginner-friendly.
