Pretty Basic Party Dress


Casual parties call for casual dresses. This cute LBD is made with viscose jersey and mesh!


Casual parties with friends and family are the best thing. They’re also a perfect excuse to sew a new dress! Our Pretty Basic Party Dress is a cute little black dress. It’s best made with viscose jersey and mesh with a matching amount of ease. The combination of two elastic materials make the dress comfortable to wear.

The Pretty Basic Party Dress features a see-through yoke made without shoulder seams. It’s A-lined at the hem, and fitted at the waist. It has long, flared sleeves with a see-through hem. If you prefer short sleeves, just skip making the lower part!

This dress is designed for jerseys. It can be made with other elastic materials as well. If you choose to sew it with other materials, you may need to install a zipper.

Please note that the Pretty Basic Party Dress is available in petite sizes only!

The download (size 2,4Mt) includes a pattern sheet in sizes 32-36, and an illustrated sewing tutorial written only in English.
