Betty dress by Sew Over It (with add ons)
This is a 1950’s inspired sleeveless dress with a fitted bodice. There are two bust darts and four waist darts (two at the front and two at the back of the dress). The dress has also a full circle skirt and it fastens at the centre back with an invisible zipper. A new addition to the pattern is the “Betty dress add-on pack” which includes sleeve and neckline variations.
I made the V-neck sleeveless variation.
Sewing pattern: Betty dress and Betty add – ons by Sew Over It
Fabric: Viscose in royal blue (main fabric – for 6 euros per meter) and Viscose lining fabric for the lining (for 4 euros per meter), both form ifasmaeu.
Notions: 45cm long concealed zipper from my local haberdashery
Alterations: I lined the entire dress instead of lining only the bodice.I shorten the skirt about 8cm.
Total cost: ~34 euros
Make another one: Yes, I would love to make another one in the future. However, I find this dress quite formal for me for daily wear but I would love to try a scoop neckline, longsleeve version
