Buy the Origami Dress and Top sewing pattern from The Maker’s Atelier. This style, designed to be made in stretch jersey fabrics, is deceptively simple to make and exceptionally beautiful to wear. The asymmetric twist at the centre front cleverly drapes and falls in soft folds, while the drop shoulder creates a subtly elegant batwing effect. Options are given for long or short sleeves, or no sleeves for a capped sleeve look.

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

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). What is Copy Shop?

Suggested fabrics: Suitable for jersey fabrics only including cotton, viscose and silk jerseys. Viscose/elastane jerseys are most suitable for their weight and drape. It is possible to make the sleeveless top in woven crinkle fabrics (as shown in the image gallery) but they need stretch and fluidity.
