DHURATA DAVIES • Martha Dress Sewing Pattern
The Martha Dress is a timeless sewing pattern designed by Dhurata Davies combining effortless style and comfort. With its relaxed fit, 3/4 length sleeves, and flattering round neckline, it’s an essential wardrobe choice. Optional patch pockets add further functionality.
View A features wide sleeves with a deep inverted pleat at the shoulder seam, a horizontal tuck detail on the bodice, deep inverted pleats on the centre front and back of the skirt, and a deep hem. View B has tapered sleeves, three shallower inverted pleats on the skirt, and a regular hem.
Martha is perfectly adaptable to any season depending on fabric choice - opt for lighter fabric on warmer days to enjoy the flowy silhouette, or heavier fabric and layers on colder weather. With no zips, buttons or darts, Martha is a stress-free sewing project, suitable for all skill levels.
