Betty Dress pattern by Sew Over It.
Make yourself a beautiful 1950’s inspired dress based on the style of Betty Draper!
With a fitted bodice and full circle skirt, Betty is super flattering for all figures, nipping you in at the waist and flaring out to create a beautiful silhouette. The dress fastens with an invisible zip down the centre back, has facings around the neckline and armholes and a machine finished hem.
The pattern contains full instructions with beautifully illustrated diagrams.
To see my versions of this dress, see the blog post about them here.
This is a multi-sized pattern in UK sizes 8-20. For sizings and fabric yardage, see images.
Light to medium weight cotton, cotton lawn, rayon, crepe and even lightweight wools. Because of the nature of the circle skirt, we recommend avoiding any strong one-way directional prints.
16″ invisible zipper
This is an advanced beginner pattern. We recommend you’ve made a couple of garments before and had a go at inserting an invisible zip.
