Lodo Dress

True Bias



Buy the Lodo dress sewing pattern from True Bias, is perfect for a confident beginner who wants to sew with stretch fabrics. The Lodo pattern 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 center 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.

What We Think: We love the slight cocoon shape of the Lodo dress making it flattering on a lot of body types. If you wanted to make more of a feature of this try using a stable knit like and interlock or ponte.

Suggested Fabrics: Medium weight stable knit fabric with an approximate 25% stretch such as ponte, cotton interlock, and lightweight scuba.

Size: US 0 – 18 (approx. UK 8 – 20).

Materials & supplies:

View A: 1.4-2.6 M

View B: 1.1-1.6 M
