The Sheath Dress by The Avid Seamstress

This is an Indiesew Blogger Team post. Indiesew has kindly sponsored the pattern, I've used for this post - and I'll link directly to the pattern just below.

So very simple -  yet so perfect. The Sheath Dress designed by The Avid Seamstress could very well become one of my favorite go to patterns when I want to make something fast, easy and flattering. The original pattern comes with a round neckline, invisible back zipper, optional pockets and two sleeve lengths to choose from....and an elastic waist option.

As you can see I altered the pattern a bit and made higher neckline. I also omitted the zipper, pockets and waistband. You could even cut the back on fold if you have enough fabric. Oh, and the dress is also unhemmed = new dress in less than one hour. What's not to like?!

This is a beginner friendly pattern. The instructions are utterly amazing - you are thoroughly guided through every step of the construction. The Avid Seamstress definetely has some of the best instructions I've some across. 

The fabric is a beautiful pleated velvet from The Sweet Mercerie. I need more of this. Must have green velvet culottes. And a tee. And another dress....oh, and a jumpsuit.

My new Christmas dress, check! Apparently my 19 year old daughter has a new Christmas dress. Sigh.

The Human Christmas Tree - over and out!

  1. Your pictures are always so beautiful! What type of lense do you use? And did you add an external flash, or is it just the Danish light that is so soft and evenly distributed?
