Chestnut Dress – Super easy pattern hack tutorial!

Hi lovely sewists!

I am back on the blog to show you a tutorial I posted on the CocoWawa Crafts YouTube channel featuring a pattern hack on the popular Chestnut Sweater and Top sewing pattern. In this case, I teach you how to transform the top version into a comfy, beautiful dress (with bow at the back, of course), perfect for Spring and Summer, using a lightweight knit fabric froom Cotton Reel Studio.


On this tutorial, I used version A of the top

For the hack, you just need a pencil, some tracing or paper pattern, a ruler and your usual sewing tools: pins, thread, sewing machine, tape measure…



It is a great tutorial to get the most of your pattern and very easy to follow. Just click on the video and get sewing! 😊

Let me know on the comments how it went, if you are going to try it, or whether you like hacking the patterns you already got. And don’t forget to share your makes with the hashtag #chestnutdress.

Happy sewing!
