Claire Tiered Dress
– Free Sewing Pattern –
After struggling for quite some time, I finally have the Claire dress done. The Claire dress in my sketch is a button down one, but when making the pattern, I think that this kind of design has too much details and is unfriendly to most of new sewists, so I decided to simplify it a bit – making it without the button placket. So, the final design is as follow:
The principal features of this dress remain unchanged: neckline with ruffled detail, three tiered skirt, with two layers at the second tier and cap sleeves. The dress is a wonderful choice for those who love feminine and modest style.
And let’s see how it looks in 3D simulation:
Beautiful, isn’t it? And also it looks great on larger models:
