We’ll share another dress from Daniela in August…

The Camille Dress

Created by On the Cutting Floor for Sew Mama Sew.

Materials:

  • Printed patterns
  • 2 ½ yards of mid-weight knit fabric
  • Matching thread
  • Ballpoint needle
  • Scissors

Printing Instructions:
This printable PDF pattern is assembled by overlapping ½”. The pattern comes in letter size paper. To print this pattern, download the PDF document. Select FILE, then PRINT. It will print 42 pages. Wait until all the pages are printed before taking them from the printer; it will make it easier to assemble. When finish printing, place the pages as the layout below. Then use tape to put them together. Now cut the pieces.

Here is the picture of the printing layout:

Sometimes, there are problems with the printing process and the patterns come in the wrong size (a little bit smaller). To avoid this, check the 1 inch square inside of the front bodice pattern. It will help you to see if the patterns are the correct size.

The PDF pattern comes in sizes from 4 to 22 (US Size). The colors for each size are:
4: Black
6: Red
8: Green
10: Blue
12: Orange
14: Purple
16: Yellow
18: Pink
20: Light Green
22: Brown

This pattern comes with a 1/2 inch seam allowance, unless indicated otherwise.

Fabric:
Mid-weight knit cotton

Yardage:
For 60″ wide fabric: 2 1/2 yards (the dress pieces are cut on bias)

Instructions:
Please note that in order to have the best results working with knits you will need a ballpoint needle and a zig-zag setting on your sewing machine.

1. Place layer 1 and 2 together, both right sides facing up.

2. Place the layer 3 at the top, with the wrong side facing up.

3. Pin and sew along the top.

4. Place the front of the dress and the layers together, right sides facing up.

5. Place the back piece of the dress on top of the front piece, wrong side facing up.

6. Pin and close sides and shoulders.

7. Fold the neckline and armholes by ½ inch. Pin and sew along.

8. Finish by folding the hemline ½ inch. Pin and sew along.

  5. Daniela says:

    Thanks Kathy for your words. It is true, the disguise ”method” works so well for the tummy area :)

    About your question. There are basically two top pieces: one shorter for the back and one longer for the front. When creating the layers, you need to add the ”layered” pieces to the shorter top; then, place the longer one on top and attached those two fronts by the shoulders, armholes and sides.

    Thanks again ;)

    I love it! I have a similar dress that I bought, and the layers disguise my tummy! One question though: in step 3,you have us pinning & sewing the top to the bottom layer, but the way you show it in the finished dress, the top tier hangs loose over the bottom. I’m confused! :-) Am I reading it wrong?
