Nettie Dress and Bodysuit
Closet Case Patterns
Buy the Nettie bodysuit and dress sewing pattern from Closet Case Patterns, soon to become your wardrobe staple! The pattern is close fitting with high cut arms and can be made into a knit dress OR a bodysuit. This pattern can we made many ways with a choice of 3 sleeve lengths, 2 neckline and 3 back variations. The bodysuit variation has a low cut bum to prevent annoying panty lines, along with an optional snap crotch so you don’t have to get naked to use the ladies’ room. The leg and neck openings are finished with the same stretch fabric you’ll use to make the bodice, so this is a budget conscious project – you don’t need any extra notions unless you’re adding crotch snaps or a shelf bra.
What we think: The bodysuit is perfect for wearing under skirts and will be a really fast sew too. There is a great neckline on this pattern, it’s low but modest at the same time. If you need a little hand holding why not checkout Heather’s sew-along for this pattern.
Suggested Fabrics: 4-way stretch jersey with good recovery and at least 50% crosswise stretch; cotton-lycra and lycra are ideal. 2-way stretch fabrics such as ponte are only recommended for the dress variation, as long as they also stretch at least 50%
This sewing pattern is available in PAPER format.
