Elisalex Dress PDF
By Hand London
Buy the Elisalex Dress sewing pattern from By Hand London. Elisalex is an elegant dress with a fitted princess seamed bodice and box pleated tulip skirt. There are three sleeve variations and the bodice is designed with very little ease to hug the figure and enhance a cinched waist. The sleeveless bodice of Variation 1 is fully lined, whilst Variations 2 and 3 are finished with a neckline facing.
Suggested fabrics: Medium-heavy weight wovens are best, such as upholstery cottons, flannel, shantung silk, taffeta, brocade, jacquard, tweed and wool. For the lining we recommend 100% cotton lawn. Lighter weight fabrics will benefit from underlining in silk organza or cotton organdy at the skirt.
Fabric requirements: 150 cm (60”) wide fabric: sleeveless V1, 2 m (2.2 yards); short sleeved V2, 2.6 m (2.9 yards); long sleeved V3, 2.6 m (2.9 yards)// 115 cm (45”) wide fabric: sleeveless V1, 2.3 m (2.5 yards); short sleeved V2, 2.9 m (3.2 yards); long sleeved V3, 3.2 m (3.5 yards) // lining: 0.8 m (0.9 yards).
