Pattern Envelope

When searching for the best pattern, choose a pattern envelope that shows the sewn garment worn on a real model. The sketched interpretations are just that, an interpretation on how the garment fits and drapes on the body. If the pattern company hasn’t made the garment, then you shouldn’t either.

Simplicity 9140 is a fun and quick pattern that looks great on. You can learn to make this dress step-by-step in my Simplicity 9140 Sew Along.
