Dress 47 was created to get women into clothes that make them feel beautiful. Better yet, allow them to create the clothing themselves, giving them the control of comfortable fabrics and unique alterations to make the garment juuuust right for their needs.
Fun facts. The midline sits at the smallest part of the natural waist. Tie front closure, gathered skirt, and optional pockets! The waistband fits comfortably snug, with the help of an elastic back waistband, so we've included an invisible zip on the side seam. The hemline is intended to fall just above the knee but is customizable to your needs.

Our Printed Pattern option includes all pattern sizes printed on high quality tissue paper and a tutorial booklet with detailed instructions to guide you through constructing your garment.
