Norah Dress PDF Sewing Pattern

From: £13.50


Sew a contemporary wrap dress with the Norah Dress PDF sewing pattern!

The Norah Dress is the latest addition to our collection of wrap dresses. The contemporary design features grown-on sleeves and optional oversized patch pockets that really make a statement.

With no darts, shaping is provided with gathers under the bust. The back bodice and the skirt are also gathered into a flattering wide waistband.

The midi length skirt has a gentle a-line shape and the dress closes with a tie belt that sits over the waistband.

The V-neckline is finished with a neckband and the dress is hemmed with a neat technique that will give you a high end result.

Make a classic Norah Dress in a plain fabric to really show off the design of the pattern, or have fun with a print! Use a linen or a viscose linen for a more structured dress, a viscose or a crepe for a softer silhouette.

Sewing Level
The Norah Dress is an Intermediate wrap dress sewing pattern.

Fabric Suggestions
Norah is best made in a medium weight woven fabric with drape, such as medium weight crepe, viscose twills, linen, or a linen viscose mix. You can also use viscoses and crepes for a softer silhouette. Interface one waistband if using a viscose.

Sizing & Fabric Requirements
The Norah Dress is sized between UK sizes 6-30 and is split into two different blocks: sizes 6-20 (B cup) and sizes 18-30 (D cup). See the size charts (last pictures in the gallery) for details on fabric requirements.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
