Dulcie is a structured, button-down pinafore dress with a square neckline and semi-fitted A-line skirt with square in-set pockets.
Princess seams provide shaping through the bodice for a smooth fit over the bust and back, and deep roomy pockets carry all of your daily essentials.
The bodice is fully lined for a clean inside finish, and optional top-stitching in key areas can add a modern element to an otherwise 60s mod design.
Wear Dulcie over light-weight blouses and shirts or fitted knit tops, for a warm layered dress. If you’re heading into the warmer months however, and don’t want to be wearing additional layers, Dulcie has plenty of coverage and is able to be worn on its own as a sleeveless summer dress.
Multiple Bust Cups – C to F
If you were ever worried about performing FBAs on princess seams, worry no more…
Dulcie original sizing includes pattern pieces for C-F cups, so that you’ll no longer need to make additional bust adjustments for the perfect fit.
Included in the instructions are a full set of Finished Garment Measurements, as well as detailed instructions on choosing the right size for your unique shape.
Dulcie is a perfect project for intermediate seamstresses or confident beginners looking to up-skill.
Several tutorials will cover some of the trickier steps in the coming weeks.
The Dulcie Pinafore is available in two size ranges: the Original and Curve sizes. This listing is for the curve sizing, 16-34 with cup sizes C-F. You can find the new sizing information here, including how to choose your cup size.
Dulcie is drafted for an average height of 170cm or 5’7″.
The Dulcie Pinafore is best suited to mid-weight fabrics with some structure. Denim, corduroy, wool, suitings, tweeds and mammoth flannel will make a great Dulcie Pinafore.
For the bodice lining, look for light-weight woven fabrics such as cotton lawn or voile to help reduce seam allowance bulk.
Note: if you are using a bulky/thick fabric, you may want to cut your second waistband (the one that will sit on the inside of the dress) in a lighter weight fabric to reduce bulky seams.
