Part of our 2019 Build a Wardrobe programming, The Fractal Dress pattern includes three style variations for the garment body (top, crossover top, and dress), two sleeve variations for this garment (short and 3/4), two neckline options (Crew and Funnel), optional side-seam pocket, and all necessary instructions. This is a modern style that will complement any woman’s body. The shape is relaxed yet tailored for a flattering fit, and the panels allow the opportunity to play with color and engage the pattern in creative ways. Pattern comes in sizes XS to XXL along with instructions for fabric selection, cutting, and garment construction. See chart below for yardage requirements. This pattern is designed for use with The School of Making™ Studio Book Series as a reference for detailed sewing instruction.
