Sheath Dress pattern by The Avid Seamstress

The Sheath Dress is a gorgeously draped garment with a flattering round neckline, elasticated waist, and invisible zip at the back. Your options are endless; make this dress with short or mid-length sleeves, with inner pockets or without.

Depending on your fabric choice you could omit the zip at the back or put a simple button tie.

New to sewing? No worries! With minimal pieces to cut out and the option to create a looser fit without the elastic waist, this is a dress you’ll love to wear year-round.

Please note that the skirt is slim/fitted on this dress so please check your measurements and easily grade to the next size at the skirt if you would like it looser.
