Chestnut Dress - Super Easy Pattern Hack Tutorial!

Chestnut dress sewing pattern hack

With this easy dress pattern hack, I am back on the blog to show you a tutorial I posted on the CocoWawa Crafts YouTube channel featuring 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 from the lovely online fabric shop based in the UK, Cotton Reel Studio.

On this tutorial, I used version A of the top.

For the hack, you will just need a pencil, some tracing or paper pattern, a ruler and your usual sewing tools: pins, thread, sewing machine, tape measure... Oh! And the Chestnut Sweater and Top pattern of course!
