A tribute to the beautiful paintings of the artist Sonia Delaunay, this pattern will allow you to have fun with different combinations of fabrics. Create an elegant evening dress with its details highlighted by lace or satin, or perhaps a more avant-garde effect with contemporary colour blocking. Or even play with mixing and matching prints!
**There is a video tutorial available for this pattern**
The seam allowances are included in your pattern.
The booklet is in French with English translation.
Sewing level: Intermediate. The technical elements are the installation of the invisible zip, setting in the sleeves, making a sleeve cuff, and forming the inlays on the front skirt. A video tutorial is available for extra assistance.
Choice of fabric :
The Sonia dress lends itself to many combinations due to its construction. Viscose, crêpe, cotton poplin will be perfectly adapted as the main fabric, and if you want to contrast the materials try a beautiful lace, mesh or tulle. Combine plain and printed fabrics, or even mix the prints!
