Description

I am Aura, a simple and elegant high-low hem A-line dress. I can be made as a top and also as a dress with a gathered ruffle band, finishing above the knee. My rounded neckline allows you to slip me on easily without the need to sew a closure. I feature a bust dart and I am lined to the chest to beautifully finish the armholes and neckline. Although simple to sew, I deliver great impact, so I am perfect for beginners and experienced sewists.

Level: Simple

PAPER PATTERN

All seam allowances are included in the pattern.

The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.

The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. If you prefer a ready-to-cut pattern, try the pdf version as pieces do not overlap with each other.

Size 36 to 46. See sizing guide below.
