LOOSE DRESS SEWING PATTERN DETAILS
The lovely loose dress sewing pattern Marshmallow comes with three different sleeve options: 3/4 sleeves and cuffs, short sleeves or sleeveless. It features a loose, comfy fit and a fun ruffle, Peter Pan collar and optional cute bow.
The Marshmallow dress can be dressed up or down, from a Christmas party to a wedding, from a walk around town to the office with a belt for a close fitted look.
And if you like this version for adults, you can also make a Mini Marshmallow trapeze dress sewing pattern for little girls age 3 to 12.
You can also learn how to sew and make this dress sewing pattern on our YouTube Channel.
For Autumn and Winter choose medium-weight wovens like cotton, cotton blends, light to medium wools, denim, corduroy or flannel.
Meanwhile, during Spring and Summer opt for light to medium-weight wovens similarly to medium cottons, linen, chambray, lighter denims, double crepe and crepe.
Version A – 3/4 or short sleeves – 115cm / 45’’ fabric width: 2.7m / 2.95 yards*
Version A – 3/4 or short sleeves – 150cm / 60’’ fabric width: 3m / 3.28 yards
Option B – sleeveless – 115cm / 45’’ fabric width: 2.5m / 2.73 yards*
Option B – sleeveless –150cm / 60’’ fabric width: 2.3m / 2.5 yards
*This alternative is only valid for all the dress pieces minus the ruffle as this piece is wider than the fabric. Therefore, you will have to choose a 150cm-60’’ wide fabric just for this piece with an approx. 40cm length. To sum up, this option is great for making a contrasting version like the one on the cover with a different fabric for the ruffle.
