Chelsea Party Dress PDF
Buy the Chelsea Party Dress sewing pattern from Amy Nicole. The Chelsea Party Dress is an empire waist, gathered and flared dress with a plunging neckline and open back. This pattern offers two views. View A is a shorter, flirty above-the-knee length. View B adds a panel for a beautiful, dramatic maxi length. This pattern prefers lighter weight fabrics with good drape, but more structured fabrics could work for the bodice pieces.
Each Amy Nicole pattern is named after a woman who has been an inspiration in my life. This pattern is named after the ultimate party girl, my cousin Chelsea. Her energy and free spirit are contagious, and she is a very talented graphic designer.
