107 Afghan Nomad Dress
The 107 Afghan Nomad Dress sewing pattern from Folkwear. This traditional dress worn by nomadic women in Afghanistan is ideal for mixing fabrics and embellishments. This dress has an extremely full skirt and sleeves. It is traditionally worn ankle length, but can be adapted to a shorter variation. The raised bodice is fitted and connects to the skirt by the front waist band and underarm gussets. The neck opening can be placed at the front or back, although it is traditionally worn to the back. The skirt is gathered by a double line of even stitches, forming tiny, unpressed pleats. The back of the skirt has two tiers and the fabric can be mixed or one kind.
There are three optional bodice embroidery treatments, using chain stitch, mirror cloth, and satin stitch, which are all authentic detailing.
Please note: This pattern can only be purchased directly from the designer. It is not for sale. For the full range of Folkwear PDF patterns we sell, take a look at our shop.
Suggested fabrics: Soft, medium-weight fabrics such as cotton, rayon challis, or silk; the upper sleeve and/or skirt may be of soft rayon or silk velvet. This dress is often made in many prints, which is a wonderful opportunity to use up bits and pieces of brilliant fabrics.
Sizing: US 6 – 16.
