Five gorgeous dresses to make for Valentine’s Day
Stuck for ideas for what to wear on Valentine’s Day?
Here are five of our favourite dress patterns to make you feel gorgeous on your special date-night.
These five patterns range from Confident Beginner to Intermediate sewing level and cover both woven and knit fabrics. You’re sure to find something that suits your style and Valentine’s Day plans!
The Meredith Dress is an effortlessly sexy wrap dress designed to be sewn in jersey. The gathers at the shoulder yoke help to achieve a great fit around the bust, and the tie keeps the dress closed whilst cinching you in at the waist. Meredith looks classic in a solid colour, and, thanks to minimal seams also works with a large-scale print jersey. Sizes UK 6-30.
The Heidi Dress is a no-fuss woven wrap dress with a touch of glamour. Choose a striking print that’s sure to turn heads, or opt for a delicate georgette for a more elegant look. Heidi looks fantastic as a maxi dress and you also have the option to make her knee-length. Sizes UK 8-20.
The perfect combination of comfort and style, our Nomi Dress pattern is designed for knit fabrics and is ideal for a night out, especially in the version with the twisted bodice. Keep it knee-length for dancing or add a frill at the bottom to make her midi or maxi length. Sizes UK 6-30.
Betty Dress and Add-on Pack
Our popular Betty Dress pattern is great for Confident Beginners and with the Add-on Pack you can make Betty with sleeves and the choice of a V-neck or scooped neck. She’s perfect to showcase a beautiful non-directional print and works with anything from a medium-weight cotton to a crepe, or even a lightweight wool. Sizes UK 6-30.
With optional yoke and shoulder frills, the Isla Dress is perfect for a romantic dinner. Make her in a lightweight woven fabric with lots of drape and pick a solid colour to showcase those frills. How adorable does she look in pink? Sizes UK 8-20.
For an extra special touch, make a silk Sidbury Slip Dress to wear under your me-made dress, or as the most luxurious sleepwear!
With a stunning appliqued lace front and pleated straps, it’s cut on the bias and has bust darts to help you to create your perfect fit. Choose from two different lengths to suit your style. The Sidbury Slip Dress comes in sizes UK 6-30.
