This is a PDF sewing pattern and tutorial to teach you how to create these garments. THIS IS NOT A FINISHED PRODUCT.

This classic, tight fit pencil dress can be an everyday dress in a more casual knit, or a real show stopper in the floor length and a structured knit!  It is drafted for a more stable knit like ponte roma, stretch velvet, stretch lace, liverpool, but you can also use a more casual double brushed polyester, thicker sweater knit, or a spandex blend french terry.

It has a center seam along the back from a close fit along your curves.  Some lengths include a kick pleat for walking ease.  You can put in a zipper to make it easier to get on and off or leave it off and wiggle in and out of it 😉 .  The traditional set in sleeves and off the shoulder both come with short sleeve, half sleeve, 3/4 sleeve and long sleeve to make sure you can sew it up for all seasons.  Lengths include a crop at natural waistline, top at full hip, just above knee, just below knee, midi/calf length and the stunning floor length that has a mermaid flare at the bottom for such a flattering silhouette.

The neckline is a classic boatneck with the option of a high back or a scoop back.  The off the shoulder has it’s own glamorous neckline cutting across for a dramatic look.

Whether you’re wearing it for running errands in a more casual knit or pulled out all the stops and do a formal you will feel sexy in this tight fit dress!
