A paper sewing pattern by UK Indie pattern company Sew Different.
We're excited to now be stocking Sew Different sewing patterns! We love the timeless chic of these patterns, they're fresh and classy and great to work with.
From Laura's new 'Gambit' collection comes The Gambit Dress. This is is a 60s inspired shift dress with striking chequer-board style lines. It is a straight up-and-down shape with bust darts and a round neck. It pulls on over the head with no need for a zip. Included in the pattern, although not shown in photography or instructions, is an optional short sleeve.
You have the option of using two contrasting fabrics. For best results ensure that the two fabrics you use are of similar weight and texture. There are lengthen/ shorten lines marked on the pattern for you to adjust to suit your own style.
Suggested fabrics: double knit, ponte de roma, stretch cotton, cotton, linen, scuba, fine wool, drill, twill, denim (the cover image was made in double knit.)
