Pattern Hack • The Day Dress by The Avid Seamstress

Posted on January 01, 2017

I loved this lengthened version of The Day Dress made by Lisa, the designer and owner of The Avid Seamstress, the moment I first saw it over on Instagram.

The Avid Seamstress Pattern Hack of The Day Dress

It's such an easy adaption, Lisa has simply increased the length of the skirt by 12cm to create a very stylish and contemporary silhouette, and somehow it makes this dress look completely different!

To achieve a similar look why not use one of the Sevenberry fabrics.... Broken Lines cut on the "cross-grain' would work well as would Small Spots.

For a special occasion, or the party season, a lengthened Day Dress in one of the Robert Kaufman Metallic Essex Linens would look stunning. Any one of them would look lovely but this season I'm particularly drawn to the new Storm and Black colourways
