Buy the Lizz Dress sewing pattern from By Hand London. One pattern, two very different dresses, and infinite hackability! At her core, Lizz is a basic darted bodice with generous ease, a high waist, simple sleeves and the perfect scoop neckline. Throw in a fabulously full circle skirt with an inverted V waist, a multi-tier gathered skirt, a neckline ruffle AND a waistline flounce, and you’ve got all your favourite future dresses in one handy pattern!

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following format:

– PAPER (next working day dispatch on orders and FREE UK delivery over £50)

Suggested fabrics: Lightweight wovens are the way to go, but the substrate-weave combination you choose will give you dramatically different effects. For drape and schwing, opt for viscose challis, crepe, silk twill, tencel, etc. For a softer dress, go for naturals like enzyme washed linen and brushed cotton. Or crank it up a notch and try fabrics like sheer organza and velvet!

For the samples, the designer used a white diamond jacquard tencel, a baby blue tencel twill, a purple floral viscose challis and a blue and white floral viscose marocain.

A note from the designer about bust cups: Dressmaker’s cup sizes have nothing in common with bra sizes! Dressmaker’s cup sizes relate to the ratio between your high bust and full bust measurements (whereas your bra size relates to the ratio between your full bust and under bust measurements). A dressmaker’s B cup indicates that the full bust is 2″ larger than the high bust, while a dressmaker’s D cup indicates that the full bust is 4″ larger than the high bust.

Notions: Matching thread; 16″ – 18″ invisible zipper; a few hooks and eyes.
