Buy the Lodo Dress sewing pattern from True Bias. It’s perfect for a confident beginner who wants to sew with stretch fabrics. The Lodo is an elevated take on a basic t-shirt dress. It has a straight fit through the waist and hips and a slightly tapered hem to create a subtle cocoon shape. It has a flattering deep V neck at centre front and an extended cap sleeve. Both the neckline and armholes are finished with a woven facing for stability and structure. View A has a hem that hits at mid calf with a slit at centre back for moveability. View B’s hem hits a couple of inches above the knee.
