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.
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.
This is a multi-sized pattern in UK sizes 8-20.
To see my versions of this dress, see the blog post about them here.
Fabric Requirement: 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.
Other Supplies: 16″ invisible zipper
