Hello, my name is Reginala Merselina-Isidora and in this blog post I want to share my Pattern Mash with the Be Dreamy & the Be Captivating Pattern with you.
I used this pattern mash to wear to a wedding party that I had last April. And I have another wedding to attend soon, so I made this beautiful dress again. In this blog you can read how I did this.
These are the line drawings of the patterns that I used. The following pattern pieces are needed:
- Be Dreamy Dress Pattern- Front and Back Skirt and Flounce Pattern Piece
- Be Captivating Pattern - Front and Back Bodice Pattern Piece
Let’s get started!
- Patterns: Be Dreamy & Be Captivating Pattern
- Optional: Paper to trace the pattern
- Knit fabric (4 way stretch fabrics with 50% stretch. Structured fabric with excellent recovery is best used to make this dress or top. Fabric options include but are not limited to: Brushed Polyester, and Spandex blends)
- Sewing Machine and/or Serger
Pick your fabric and cut the pattern pieces.
Make sure you have these pattern pieces ready before you start cutting your fabric.
- Be Dreamy : Skirt Front, Skirt Back, Flounce
- Be Captivating Top : Dress Front and Back
Cut your fabric into the pattern pieces.
The sewing fun begins! Prepare your pieces and sew the front and back skirt piece together at the side seams (Full sewing instructions for the skirt can be found in the Be Dreamy Instructions).
Sew the back bodice and the two front bodice pieces together at the shoulders and the side seams. When you pick a different color for the front bodice pieces, be mindful of how you overlap the font bodice pieces and which color is showing (Full sewing instructions for the bodice can be found in the Be Captivating Instructions).
Pin the flounce sleeves in the armcye of the bodice sides. (Full sewing instructions for the skirt can be found in the Be Dreamy Instructions).
Now you can sew the skirt and the bodice together. Please make sure to add (clear) elastic to the waistline to help support the weight of the skirt. You add the elastic in a 1:1 ratio to the bottom of the bodice while (that way you can enclose the elastic when you fold the waist seam upwars after sewing).
You are ready! You have a beautiful new dress to wear for to any occasion!
